Dear Audrey,

We are standing at a pivotal time for the political and economic future of the country, but rather than continue with business-as-usual, it’s time we look for solutions. Worker cooperatives provide an answer to many of country’s issues. As businesses owned and governed by their employees, co-ops represent an opportunity to build good jobs, strengthen the community, and empower workers.

But you already know this.

It’s time we ask: how do we scale the co-op movement? How has the movement grown and where are we going? How do they fit into the larger fight against economic inequality?

In a webinar event co-hosted by the U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives, the Democracy at Work Institute, the New Economy Coalition, and the Democracy Collaborative, you’ll learn about:

  • The worker co-op movement’s development over the last few years,
  • Newly-released data on successes and growth in employee ownership,
  • How the worker cooperative movement is raising money for the people and by the people, and
  • Exciting policy developments in the last year.

Join us for "Worker Co-ops — A Solution for an Economy in Crisis" Monday, November 20th at 2:00 pm EST.

Moderated by John Duda, Director of Communications for the Democracy Collaborative, this interview-style event will go beyond theory basics and into the tangible, rapidly growing efforts to grow worker cooperatives across the United States.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Esteban Kelly, US Federation of Worker Cooperatives
  • Kate Khatib, The Working World National Peer Network
  • John O’Neill, American Sustainable Business Council
  • Molly Hemstreet, Opportunity Threads


You can register for the event ahead of time here.

We can’t wait to see you there!
