An Interview from the Take Care of Each Other World Tour
Jamila is the Executive Director of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance. She is a passionate advocate and educator for the advancement and growth of the cooperative economy. In her work with existing and start-up co-ops, she provides support for leadership development, cooperative economics education, navigating group dynamics, and creating adaptive systems to support group process and learning.
The Take Care of Each Other World Tour is a series of interviews with architects, farmers, engineers, and cooperative businesses about their sustainable visions for the future. The tour archives the work of people who cooperatively shape their world instead of endure it. This work records their inspirations, grounding principles, and lessons learned for future generations to move their work forward. In partnership with the Moorland Spingarn Research Center at Howard University and the Grassroots Economic Organizing Collective, the tour explores eight cities in the U.S. and Accra, Ghana.
