Start a Co-op!
Co-ops are about people coming together to meet the challenges of their community through mutual aid in a democratic manner. Almost any organization that has an economic function can be a co-op! The Pacific Northwest has a rich diversity of cooperatives from internet providers, fruit and vegetable producers, homecare workers, software developers, consumer co-ops (grocery, sporting goods, and even a funeral home), financial institutions, and more. We look forward to hearing about your project and offering our technical assistance.
