Collective REMAKE: Art, Business, Education, Jobs, News, People, and Recycling
for Sustainability is a unique social enterprise—in Los Angeles County—designed to support the creation of worker-owned businesses and other kinds of cooperatives with people who have been incarcerated and other individuals who are marginalized socially and economically due to race, sex, class, gender identity, age or ability.

A worker cooperative is a for-profit business that is owned and managed by the people that work there. Workers come together to meet common financial, social and cultural needs for themselves, their community and future generations. There are not enough economic opportunities for people in South Los Angeles, especially for people when they come home from prison or jail. The lack of housing, job opportunities, and services make re-entry extremely difficult. Worker cooperatives are a real option for people who historically experience life-long discrimination in the workforce as the workers are their own boss and they decide the hiring criteria.
