(because the old one just isn’t working for most of us!)

The Bridge Program Mobile co-op lab advertisement flyerin partnership with the East La Community Corp, La Co-Op Lab, and the Boyle Heights Technology Youth Center hosted a New Economy Workshop.

Participants discussed the principles of cooperation, and seeing the power, possibilities, and joy of a better world. Attendees learned about worker cooperatives businesses, community ownership of land and housing, and alternatives to big banks and debt. They were also able to share their own ideas on ways to help build sustainable local economies.
