8:30pm-9:30pm: Cap off the evening listening to our panel of speakers. Are cooperatively managed businesses one solution to inequality in our food and economic systems? Why do businesses choose to go 'collective'? What are the challenges they face, how do they govern and what does it mean for their workers and the products they offer?
Keep your money TRULY local, supporting community, democratic governance, and good working conditions.
