    Cleveland Solar Cooperative w/ Kim Mann and Jonathan Welle

    Cleveland Solar Cooperative w/ Kim Mann and Jonathan Welle

    Carolyn Harding (host) with Kim Mann and Jonathan Welle, organizers of the Cleveland Solar Cooperative, a multi-racial, multi-class cooperative business that finances solar projects. It allows local residents with as little as $50 make an investment in solar, joining with fellow community members to envision, develop, and own the project. CSC promotes an energy system built, guided, and owned by those who use it.

    Kim Mann is a retired air traffic controller, Membership Director of the Cleveland Solar Cooperative, Vice-president of the Fairview Park Democratic Club, and Precinct Leader and Executive Committee Member for the Cuyahoga County Democratic Central Committee. Kim is active in local grassroots resistance and environmental organizations such as Indivisible CLE and West Shore FaCT. She and her husband Jeff aspire to get their 70-year-old home to “net-zero energy” and convert their yard to a permaculture food forest.

    Jonathan Welle is the Governance Director of Cleveland Solar Cooperative and is an organizer at Cleveland Owns, a nonprofit that incubates cooperative businesses. He works with groups of neighbors and workers who are using collective ownership of solar finance companies, a food cooperative, and a purchasing cooperative to demand their fair share of prosperity and grow a post-capitalist democratic economy.

    Gratitude- w/ KDiebel EBellomy KEscobar ZAbid KWoodford DFowler DJarrells TMills DHarewood

    Carolyn Harding with nine activists, GrassRoot_Ohio guests I’ve interviewed over the past year and a half.

    Feeling barraged by the election debacle, the surge in covid-19 infections and deaths, our innumerable causes, work, family….I struggled to find this week’s show.

    I needed to embrace Gratitude. It helps me. And no matter how, or if, you celebrate Thanksgiving, it's healing to find the good, the Wins in our work, feel it and share it.

    So I invited our GrassRoot Ohio guests to join us - to give us a brief update on their work, and to share their gratitude.

    The Count: A Practical Guide to Defending the Constitution in a Contested 2020 Election

    The Count: A Practical Guide to Defending the Constitution in a Contested 2020 Election

    GrassRoot Ohio broadcasts this timely interview a few days after the 2020 election. Morgan Harper, of Columbus Stand Up and Our Revolution Ohio, hosts Zach Malitz, co writer of The Count: A Practical Guide to Defending the Constitution in a Contested 2020 Election.
    From the introduction: The premise of this guide is that we should take Donald Trump’s threat that he won’t accept the results of the election at face value and prepare for a protracted conflict after Election Day. This is a guide to the constitutional crisis we’ll face if Trump follows through on his threats and Republicans back him, and a strategy for how ordinary people and Democratic elected officials can stop an attempted coup.
