In 2013, Harrison led the Say No to Tesco campaign, which began as a protest against the proliferation of small supermarkets in Glasgow and concluded in the group presenting a petition to the Scottish Parliament in 2014.

As a result of their presentation to the Scottish Parliament on 28 January 2014 (above), some of the Say No to Tesco campaign’s concerns were considered during the development Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill later in 2014.

In March 2016, as part of her work during The Glasgow Effect, Harrison helped to establish the Glasgow Pound Working Group to explore possibilities for using a community currency to actively support Glasgow’s small businesses and build a stronger local economy.
