Co-ops are important tools for creating racial, gender and economic justice.
On October 26, 2019, 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, including about how limited equity housing co-ops have been and continue to be an important tool for fighting gentrification, 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 lawyers and business developers will also be available to provide free advice.
Join us to help build the DC co-op ecosystem!!
