Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Reflections on 2018: A Year of Struggle, Lessons and Progress

2018 has been a year of growth and growing pains for Cooperation Jackson. We’ve experienced some significant advances and some setbacks. Over the last four years of our organization, we have learned a lot that we aim to build upon to improve our practice and advance our work in 2019 and beyond.

When launching Cooperation Jackson in 2014, we knew we were taking on an ambitious project. In the effort to establish an economic foundation to realize the Jackson-Kush Plan we knew we had a lot to both learn and unlearn. To this end, we are attempting to learn from successful solidarity economy systems from around the world and apply them here in Jackson, along with innovating new methods of sustainable production in order to make a concrete contribution towards a just transition and social transformation.
