Community Wealth Building Tools: Cooperatives (Co-ops)

Published By
The Democracy Collaborative

This toolkit focuses on cooperatives (co-ops), which are businesses governed on the principle of one member, one vote. There are many common types of co-ops, and hybrids, which combine more than one type.

Co-ops help underserved groups and communities that are often deemed less profitable by businesses, access quality goods and services. This toolkit contains an overview, support organizations, models and best practices, research resources, articles and publications, and a toolbox related to cooperatives.
