July Monthly Meeting on Cooperative Economics

Gael Orr will be joining us to discuss the history and mechanics of worker cooperatives, with a focus on Once Again Nut Butters. Once Again has been a successful democratically-controlled workplace since its founding in 1976 and has been active in promoting the expansion of cooperatives across the world.

One of the Green Party's Ten Key Values is Community-Based Economics. Almost any form of economic activity in society has at some point been carried out by a democratically-controlled cooperative. The Green Party of Monroe County believes that establishment and expansion of the cooperative movement in Monroe County is the best way forward for our communities. 

Monday, July 11th   7-9pm
Calvary St. Andrews Presbyterian Church
