We’re very excited that the City of Boston, from the Mayor’s office to the City Council, is getting fired up about cooperatives. Today is the City Council’s hearing on co-ops, and we will be there giving testimony on the economic impact of cooperatives to our city. If you’d like to read more, check out our new resource, The Case for Cooperatives as a Local Economic Development Strategy. It has links to all the most recent research from the US and abroad.
Boston Center for Community Ownership is hiring a Co-op Organizer to provide hands-on business support to worker-owned cooperatives and other small businesses in our region.
