Webinar: Worker Co-ops — A solution for an economy in crisis

We are standing at a pivotal time for the political and economic future of the country, and worker cooperatives are a solution to many of country's issues. These businesses that are owned and governed by their employees represent an opportunity to build good jobs, strengthen the community, and empower workers.

In a webinar event cohosted by the U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives, the Democracy at Work Institute, the New Economy Coalition, and the Democracy Collaborative, you'll hear about:
* the worker co-op movement's development over the last few years,
* newly-released data on successes and growth in employee ownership
* how the worker cooperative movement is raising money for the people and by the people, and
* exciting policy developments in the last year.

Moderated by John Duda, Director of Communications for the Democracy Collaborative, this interview-style event will go beyond the basics into the tangible, rapidly growing efforts to grow worker cooperatives across the United States.

Speakers:

Esteban Kelly, US Federation of Worker Cooperatives

Kate Khatib, The Working World National Peer Network

John O'Neill, American Sustainable Business Council

Molly Hemstreet, Opportunity Threads
