Report from Front line Communities: Climate Change and Cooperative Economies

On the eve of the largest demonstration of our short century,members of Cooperation Jackson will be arriving to participate in the march and share updates on their work for a vibrant cooperative economy in the south. 

Gulf coast communities have been on the forefront in the fight against racism, including the battle against BP and displacement after Katrina. Learn how the work towards cooperative economics connects with the fight for racial and climate justice.

This mixer/forum is an event sponsored by Friends of Cooperation Jackson. Donations to support the work of Cooperation Jackson are welcome. Please make checks or money orders out to Cooperation Jackson.

Cooperation Jackson is an emerging cooperative network based in Jackson, Mississippi. The network consists of four interconnected and interdependent institutions: a federation of emerging local worker cooperatives, a cooperative incubator, a cooperative education and training center, and a cooperative bank.

Featuring Brandon King, Iya'Falola H. Omobola, Dara Cooper and Rukia Lumumba.
