    How to Pool Resources

    Join us for a presentation about some of the different ways that communities can pool resources to create a more sustainable economy. We'll host a short presentation exploring how community capital can be used to support local businesses, increase community wealth, and promote social and economic justice. We will discuss the basics of:

    • Crowdfunding
    • Community Investment Funds
    • Local Investment Opportunity Networks
    • Lending Circles

    RSVP here for the teach-in portion of our Legal Cafe.

    Online Legal Cafe

    The Sustainable Economies Law Center provides direct legal support to individuals and groups who are working to create new solutions for resilient local economies. The Resilient Communities Legal Cafe is a donation-based first-come first-serve legal advice clinic, providing a collaborative space for community building and connecting. If you need advice about starting a worker-owned cooperative, converting an existing business into a cooperative, organizing a housing cooperative, founding a nonprofit or other social enterprise, please RSVP below!

    We especially encourage Black, Indigenous, people of color, and low-income communities to RSVP. We focus on cooperatives, participatory or democratic nonprofits, land trusts, and mutual aid groups.

    • instructions on how to attend our Legal Cafe remotely (zoom link); and
