Nathan Stein, Founder

Washington University Class of 2015

"One of the most beautiful things about my experience with SWAP is that it created space for people in the community, faculty, workers, and students within and outside the WashU community to meet their everyday needs, share resources, and show solidarity with one another. Being part of the SWAP community and helping to start the Trading Post was really my first step towards building the Solidarity Economy St. Louis network, which is still working throughout the St. Louis area to grow an economy from the ground up that values justice, sustainability, self-determination, and cooperation." -Julia Ho
