Jessica Gordon Nembhard into the Cooperative Hall of Fame

On May 4, 2016, USFWC co-founder Jessica Gordon Nembhard will be inducted into the Cooperative Hall of Fame. Author of Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice, tireless scholar-activist, co-founder of ECWD, active member of GEO, and a mentor to so, so many of us. If you are in a worker cooperative in 2016, you have benefited from Jessica’s efforts!

Her work is groundbreaking, and her vision and principled leadership have positioned worker co-ops as tools for economic and racial justice in the 21st century.

This is a big moment for the Hall of Fame, honoring the centrality of racial justice in cooperatives, the role of public scholarship, and the momentum built by the worker cooperative sector.
