This moment belongs to us. Help us build economic democracy in Berkeley!

Last year, you answered the call to support a resolution for the promotion of worker cooperatives at Berkeley City Council. Due to your support, we are currently working with the City of Berkeley to write an ordinance that will prioritize worker cooperatives! 

Young cooperators all around the globe are already building more equal, fulfilling and caring workplaces. WE OWN IT! is a campaign powered by CICOPA that aims to spread stories about cooperatives and cooperators to young people around the world. We want to inspire the next generation to create more caring, cooperative jobs and enterprises run by and for people.  Stay tuned: WE ONW IT! will be launched soon!

The recent financial crises in several parts of the world have been followed by a wave of bankruptcies that has taken a heavy toll on workers, business owners and communities. Financial crises and the credit crunch they provoke often lead to the closure of enterprises that are viable and have economic potential, but lack liquidity. This situation has led workers in various countries to respond to these situations by pooling their resources to recapitalize their failing workplaces and operate them in a cooperative mode.
