“A Just Transition requires us to build a visionary, regenerative economy based on caring and sacredness of relationships to each other and the world upon which we depend.”

“This calls for strategies that democratizedecentralize and diversify economic activity while we damper down consumption, and (re)distribute resources and power.  Core to a Just Transition is deep democracy in which workers and communities have control over the decisions that affect their daily lives.”

Build Co-operatives Not Prisons Not Jails: A Pathway to Sustainable Economies and Community Empowerment

J

Join Collective REMAKE and partners in a convivial participatory symposium: Learn, Share, Reflect, and Strategize!

RSVP at EVENTBRITE

Collective REMAKE and community partners are holding an interactive symposium to inform community leaders and stakeholders about the co-operatives as a sustainable solution. Co-operative businesses offer a social and economic alternative in communities that have been impacted by high rates of incarceration and economic disenfranchisement.

Co-operative businesses are democratically run and owned by the people that work there. Co-operatives operate on the values of democracy, equality, equity, self-responsibility, self-help, and solidarity.

Please join USC Partners, Reentry Leaders, LA County Agencies, systems impacted community members, and co-operative developers to explore sustainable solutions that can address the complex needs of returning citizens and local communities.

  • How can co-operatives support people coming home from prison and jail?
  • What can co-operatives offer economically marginalized communities?
  • What are the most critical needs of people who are systems impacted?
