Community-led solutions lead to transformative social change and co-ops put the power to shape our realities and decide our own futures back into people's hands. Community organizer and human rights advocate Josephine Grey of St. James Town Community Co-op joins us to explore impact co-op models that meet community needs.
The workshop will be a participatory, question-and-answer session and we encourage attendees to come with their questions for Josephine on how to create impactful co-op models that truly meet community needs.
Freedom Dreams Co-operative Education Program is an online and place-based workshop series that shares knowledge about co-operatives and the solidarity economy from a Black, Indigenous and Person of Colour (BIPOC) perspective. The "Transformation on Our Own Terms" series explores the complex histories of co-operatives often left out of the examples and conversations in the mainstream co-operative rhetoric here in Canada, with cultural significance in South and Central America, Asia and Southeast Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and throughout the Black Diaspora.
As we ‘build back better’ in a post-COVID world, this webinar series demonstrates not only what’s possible but what’s necessary in order for BIPOC communities to take their power into their own hands regarding food sovereignty, social justice, economic self-determination and more.
