At Soulardarity, we care a lot about everyone getting a say. Whether it's about where you get your power or who is running your city, we believe that everyone does better when the people most impacted by decisions get a say in making them.

Soulardarity has made incredible strides in 2016. We created Let There Be Light, our proposal for Highland Park to install 1000 solar streetlights, installed 50 home and alley solar lights in our first bulk purchase, and elected our first board of directors. We have built on that in 2017 through an expended PowerUP bulk purchasing program that is projected to install 200 solar lights this year, new educational collaborations such as Solar For The People, Advanced Energy Education, and Making It Ours: A Popular Education Course on Energy Democracy. Our member and partner teams are building a structure for member empowerment, an improved 2017 elections process, strategies for residential and community solar, and community-driven member engagement and renewals. We now have four staff, over 130 members, and our very own office. We are being covered in local and national media.
We need your help to keep building.
We are raising funds now to grow our capacity to meet these opportunities head on. Here are some of the things your donations will help to support.
- Inclusive and active community outreach
- Continually expanding our staff capacity to match our growing potential
- Launching our action team structure to empower member leadership and creativity
- Business planning to expand PowerUP to bring solar lights and jobs to our communities
- Video documentation so the world can hear the stories and see the faces of our members
- The back-end systems for our email, texting, website, and social media presence that keep you informed and engaged
Whatever you can give - $10, $100, or $1000 - makes a difference. We also encourage you to become a dues-paying member and add your voice and leadership to our forward motion.
