On October 26, 2019, DC Co-op Day brought 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 learned 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 held 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 were also available to provide free advice.

Thanks to the contributions of our sponsors!
