Cooperative Justice: Alternative Spring Break Trip

Screen Shot 2016-01-08 at 1.56.16 PMSpend a beautiful spring break in the Bay Area of California (Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco) and explore how co-ops engage with social justice movements.  How do cooperators respond to gentrification, climate change, racial injustice & more? 

During the days, you’ll venture into the cities to tour cooperatives in various sectors and understand how different leaders are seeking to build a more just economy in the Bay. When you’re not touring, you will be in interactive workshops on co-ops, power, & privilege, plus we’ll be playing games, and simulating our own worker cooperative start-up process. (And bonding with students from across the world!)  Perfect for students who don’t know anything about the cooperative model and for folks who want to learn more in depth.

You can attend from Mar. 12-18 or March 19-25

EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: Register by Feb. 1 and the price is only $350 plus the price of travel.  After that, the cost is $425.
