Seeking Cooperation, Building a Movement

Wednesday, October 10 2018 6:00 PM 8:00 PM EDT

How do we practice cooperation in our daily lives?  What histories inform our movement building around cooperative economics and building co-op businesses today?  At Seeking Cooperation, Building a Movement, we'll

  • explore the history of cooperation in the Black radical tradition including the movement history, politics, and economics of co-ops from the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Fannie Lou Hamer, and more!
  • We'll also share personal knowledge, practices, and histories on the ways we demonstrate cooperation so as to create a shared vision for growing the co-op economy today and into the future. 


The cost for this workshop is on a sliding scale basis.  Please find a cost that works for you. If you can afford to pay at the high end of the scale, please do!

All proceeds benefit PACA.
