Ganas is an intentional community in Staten Island, NY.
In a solidarity economy, our needs are met by exchanging goods, services, resources, and knowledge in ways that advance core values of justice, democracy, cooperation, and ecological sustainability. Portraits of the Solidarity Economy is a film series exploring the stories and motivations of New York City's solidarity economy leaders. You can view a map of solidarity organizations and enterprises in NYC and access additional resources at solidaritynyc.org.
