Co-hosted with PACA co-op member Bonfire Media Collective, gather with cooperators from around the region to celebrate together how the greater Philadelphia area does cooperation and community. We will have board games, co-op trivia, share success stories, and talk about our work. Plus, we'll eat!
If you are a member of a co-op, thinking about joining one, starting one, or support them, we invite you to gather with us to celebrate cooperation in our region.
Fun fact: Co-op Month has been a nationally recognized celebration since 1964, when U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman, a former Minnesota governor, proclaimed October Co-op Month.
The People’s Headquarters is on the 5th floor of a converted warehouse building. The main entrance is accessed via an ADA-compliant ramp, with an elevator that goes to the 5th floor. Inside the office, everything is one level, and flooring is low-pile industrial carpet throughout. We have a single-use locking bathroom available, but it is unfortunately not yet fully ADA-compliant (facilities are not proper heights, it’s missing supportive bars, there is a stall wall that may make it difficult to navigate). All of our restrooms are gender neutral. No ID is necessary to enter the space. We are actively working through a process to make our space fully ADA-compliant and accessible as possible.
