WHY I'M WALKING:
I am running in the Oakland Running Festival because I believe in worker cooperatives and worker self-directed nonprofits! The Sustainable Economies Law Center is working to create more of both! Their mission is to cultivate a new legal landscape that supports community resilience and grassroots economic empowerment. The Law Center provides essential legal tools - education, research, advice, and advocacy - so communities everywhere can develop their own sustainable jobs. I hope to raise $500 for their campaign. Please join us and pitch in what you can!
