What is Cooperation DC?

This Sunday May 15th at 2pm join us at Shaw Library (1630 7th Street NW) to learn how you can get involved with Cooperation DC!

Cooperation DC’s mission is to expand dignified employment opportunities in low-income communities of color through the development of worker cooperatives, businesses owned and managed democratically by their workers.

Our vision is a city and world where all workers – especially those of us who have been most marginalized by our current economy – reap the benefits of our labor, have a meaningful voice in the workplace, and apply those democratic practices to other areas of our civic lives.

Come find out what’s happening this year with Cooperation DC and how you can get involved! At the meeting you’ll have the opportunity to join one of the following Cooperation DC working groups:

CHILDCARE: support the development of an emerging childcare cooperative in NW.
FOOD: Get involved with the planning of the First Annual East of the River Food Justice Conference. Support emerging food coops in ward 7 and 8.
POPULAR EDUCATION: Help plan and continue our popular wisdom circle series and other community learning sessions.
ORG DEVELOPMENT: Do you have website, graphic design or social media skills? This is the working group for you!

We’ll also discuss the process of creating a new working group. Feel free to invite a friend or neighbor and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
