Please join NYC Network of Worker Cooperatives (NYC NOWC) and its members on March 23rd for our first ever Candidate Forum.  The forum will celebrate the groundbreaking launch of NYC’s Future is Cooperative: A Policy Platform by & for Worker Cooperatives, the culmination of years of work by NYC NOWC members, partners and allies who identified the needs of worker cooperatives in NYC and how the city can effectively create an environment that supports them.  The platform explores policies that could support worker cooperatives,  related to:

  • Direct Financial Support
  • Space and Infrastructure
  • Education and Technical Assistance
  • City Procurement
  • Movements for Racial, Immigration and Budget Justice

In anticipation of the upcoming 2021 elections, we will unveil this platform in the presence of Mayoral candidates, City Council candidates and other candidates for various city offices.   This momentous year will usher in shifts for the future of NYC and its political leadership and we must ensure now more than ever that this future is cooperative!
