All around the city, we are working within our organizations to build cooperatives and solidarity economy initiatives. This can be a powerful, transformative experience. It can also be deeply challenging, time consuming work. Too often, we feel like we’re working alone, and that our challenges are unique to our organization, our sector, or our neighborhood.
At CEANYC, we believe that we have more in common than we think, and that coming together as a community to learn, share experiences, and build relationships can be an important step towards building political and economic power. Towards that end, we are excited to invite you to our first Co-op Road Show!
At the Co-op Road Show, we will gather with like-minded cooperators across sectors, who are working locally to achieve similar goals. During a two hour workshop, facilitated by peer educators with experiences in various sectors of the cooperative movement, you will have the opportunity to:
Meet and network with other coop members in your area
Dig into key concepts behind cooperatives and solidarity economics
Identify and problem-solve around common issues and challenges
Brainstorm and develop possibilities for working together
Join us for dinner, networking and good conversation. Childcare and Spanish/English interpretation will be available upon request. Click "Register" to RSVP – we hope to see you there!
