Our workshop will explores the significance and history of cooperatives and collaborative ways to create long term, meaningful solutions and healthy ways of building wealth and uplifting community.

Learn about what is a cooperative, the historical journey and story of community-owned commercial spaces, like the ACER INC | Innovation & Catalyst Center in Brooklyn Center, and how cooperative ownership can reshape and uplift and achieve a more just and fair economic landscape for small and micro businesses within our communities.
