Reflections from the Worker Cooperative National Conference

Reflections from the Worker Cooperative National Conference

Three of Round Sky Solutions’ staff attended the Worker Cooperative National Conference in Austin co-produced by a US Federation of Worker Cooperatives and Democracy at Work Institute. We learned so much about cooperatives, about the economic, racial and social justice movement, about ourselves, and about each other. We want to share our reflections from the weekend with you, so we’ve crafted this for you to read. (Hint: the highlights include revolutionizing existing power structures, getting on our feet and dancing, and connecting with other cooperative revolutionaries around the country!)
