We launched our Coop Cafes September of 2021, and we have been very diligent in exploring the cooperative model with our Richmond residents. Those who have attended, have gotten the chance to speak with existing cooperative owners or cooperative educators from around the world. It has been a pleasure to host these Free Online Virtual monthly events for anyone interested in learning more about the cooperative structure and how it can benefit our communities. Participants are encouraged to attend and enter our raffle for a 50$ Gift Card to your Local Cooperative!
“The Coop Cafes”, a rich and culturally relevant series of Cooperative Business events designed by and for Richmond and West County residents. The Coop Cafe series will encourage and inspire you to deepen your pursuit of cooperative development through safe and open discussions with existing cooperative worker owners, advocates and consultants. The Cafe’s will offer opportunities for West County Residents to meet one-on-one and workshop their business ideas with Cooperation Richmond Project Managers, after the keynote. Cooperation Richmond is a technical assistance provider and cooperative loan fund committed to building a movement that uplifts historically marginalized Richmond residents through non-extractive investment that centers people and the planet over profit. Join our Cafe every month to learn how cooperative businesses are the structure for you.
Join us every month to learn, engage, and workshop cooperatives!
