Biographical Information

"Cheyenna Weber is an economic justice organizer and writer working to develop the solidarity economy in New York City. Originally from West Virginia, Cheyenna began organizing against mountaintop removal mining in high school and became active in global labor struggles in college. She views organizing as an act of love in direct response to oppression. Her work on the solidarity economy grew out of her recognition that without an awareness of shared responsibility for our interconnectedness we are unable to address the myriad forms of injustice, oppression, and destruction currently dominating our economic activities. Through SolidarityNYC, a solidarity economy advocacy collective she co-founded, Cheyenna supports values-led grassroots economic development in the 5 boroughs. She supported similar efforts nationally as the Interim Director of the New Economy Network, and continues that work with the New Economics Institute. Cheyenna is also active in GEO (Grassroots Economic Organizing) Collective, a media collective focused on promoting worker ownership and the solidarity economy, the U.S. Solidarity Economy Network, Brooklyn Food Coalition, and the Occupy Wall Street Worker Co-operative working group. A former national organizer for the Responsible Endowments Coalition, she also mentors student and youth leaders interested in economic justice and develops resources for burnout prevention and sustainable anticapitalist activism. She has contributed to Kosmos magazine, A Guidebook of Alternative Nows, Organizing Upgrade,, West Virginia Gazette, and West Virginia Free Press. She is a co-producer of Portraits of a Solidarity Economy (2011.)" [1]
