About this Event

Are you a community development practitioner? A small business supporter? A community activist or advocate?

Compared to traditional businesses, co-ops are more likely to provide quality jobs for marginalized populations, benefit the local economy, and address community needs.

Come learn about how cooperatives be tools for community ownership and wealth building. In this workshop, participants will learn about cooperative businesses, how they can be avenues for ownership in Black and Brown communities, and meet professionals actively supporting cooperative development in Detroit.

8:30am-9:00am : Check in & Light Breakfast

9:00am-12pm: Workshop & Panel

Featuring Grace in Action, Detroit Justice Center, and Detroit-based co-op members.

This event is brought to you by the Detroit Community Wealth Fund, in partnership with Grace In Action Collectives and the Detroit Justice Center.
