Cooperative economics and collective ownership have long been used as an asset-based, wealth building strategy to addressing systemic poverty. Their resurgence in the US in recent years is a direct response to the exponential growth in racial wealth inequality, and the thirst for innovations that create economic opportunity for both individuals and their communities. This event explores examples of how community development and grass-roots organizing groups from across the country are using worker-ownership and other cooperative strategies to build economic and political power in low-income communities and communities of color.
