Cooperation Worcester is an alliance of 9+ cooperatives with the following goals:

  • Community Development in communities hit hardest by deindustrialization, prison system, immigration, ageism and racism.
  • Creation of democratic places of dignified work.
  • Wealth and resource building.
  • Social and economic justice.

We use these Principal Strategies:

  • Leveraging the purchasing power of anchor institutions to grow the local co-op movement.
  • Form a new entity (possibly a co-op where members are co-ops) that helps us get purchasing agreements and have administrative capacity to fulfill the agreements.
