As California wrestles with the ongoing pandemic, deepening income and wealth inequality, an entrenched housing crisis, and the clarion call for racial equity, community and government leaders are open to new solutions. How about cooperatives?
Cooperatives are a well-proven but under-utilized way to create economic opportunity for workers, families and communities. In this webinar, we will explore how coops are already creating good jobs and affordable quality housing and childcare throughout our state, and how we know that they’re working.
"California Cooperatives: Today’s Landscape of Worker, Housing and Childcare Cooperatives," released in October 2021, is an in-depth 150-page report and landscape analysis authored by leading cooperative experts and practitioners.

Speakers include report authors Hilary Abell of Project Equity, Kim Coontz of the California Center for Cooperative Development, along with Leslie Payne of the James Irvine Foundation and members of California worker, housing and childcare coops.
This webinar is hosted In partnership with the James Irvine Foundation, the California Center for Cooperative Development (CCCD), Project Equity, and the Sustainable Economies Law Center.
