Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Rest in Power, Elandria Williams

The cooperative community has lost a tremendous spirit this week with the passing of Elandria Williams, a visionary agitator and unparalleled educator. Elandria was an immense force within the new economy space – a huge, joyous spirit and a powerful organizer who served in so many capacities — from the Highlander Center, to the PeoplesHub, to the founding board of The Democracy at Work Institute.

We are forever grateful for Elandria’s contributions to the worker co-op movement; some of the best parts of DAWI’s organizational DNA would not have taken shape without them. Their poetic power and no-nonsense commitment to building people power have been woven deep into the fabric of both the USFWC and DAWI, and their influence will continue to be felt for decades to come.
