DC Coop Day on Saturday

On Saturday, October 26, 2019 at THE ARC (1901 Mississippi Avenue, SE), DC Co-op Day will bring together the DC co-op ecosystem – worker co-ops, limited equity housing co-ops, food co-ops, co-op technical assistance providers and co-op advocates – for a day of learning, connecting and organizing.

We will learn together about DC’s radical co-op history and we will have workshops that cover things like:

  • Co-op governance and decision making,
  • How to start a co-op, and
  • How co-ops can get access to financing.

Co-op developers and lawyers will also be available to provide free advice.

Join us to help build the DC co-op ecosystem!!

Breakfast and lunch will be provided for attendees!

The event is free, but seating is limited. Early registration is encouraged. Free parking is available. The closest metro stations are Congress Heights or Southern Avenue on the Green Line.

Please email us at mail@dcstakeholders.coop if you are interested in supporting or getting involved in the event.

      The organizers of the event can post on this website, but I am not sure why they didn’t. I understand your frustration. I am sorry about not posting this myself earlier, which I only attempt to excuse by saying that I am an overburdened employee of a neoliberal university.

    Hi, I’m Jennifer Bryant – one of the organizers of DC Co-op Day. I sent out an invitation along with the Eventbrite link to the Co-op DC listserv on October 10th. I personally don’t have the ability to post on this site but we did broad outreach and attempted to include everyone. We had more than 75 people attend DC Co-op Day this year including many folks from Ward 7 (where I live) and Ward 8. I’d love to find more ways to connect the various communities of folks who are members or supporters of co-ops in DC. In solidarity, Jennifer
