WHEN: Tuesday, February 26, 2019. Arrive at 5:40pm at the latest so that we can take a group photo beforehand.
WHERE: Berkeley School District Board Room (1231 Addison St, Berkeley). This is a 13 minute walk from North Berkeley BART Station.
WHAT: At this City Council meeting, Berkeley will take a major step toward supporting local worker cooperative development. The economic development department will present their strategies for cultivating a strong local cooperative business sector, including making the City's Small Business Revolving Loan Fund more accessible to worker cooperatives, providing biz dev support to worker coops, and helping retiring business owners to sell their enterprise to workers.
HOW: We need YOU to join us! In order to ensure that the City makes clear and bold commitments to worker coops, we must demonstrate strong public support for our vision. RSVP below to receive important details and announcements about the event. Join dozens of other worker coop members and advocates in demanding an economy that puts people and planet before profits. Please wear the color green to show solidarity!
Many thanks to Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin and the Office of Economic Development staff for their leadership, and thanks to our partners in cooperation, Project Equity, the Democracy at Work Institute, the Network of Bay Area Worker Coops (NoBAWC), and the US Federation of Worker Coops. And to all those worker coop members, advocates, and friends who have been so committed to shaping and advancing this effort over the years - thank you.
