Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Author

Bruce J. Reynolds retired from the USDA Cooperatives program in 2016, after 39 years of service. During that time he wrote several articles for Rural Cooperatives magazine as well as research papers on cooperatives.

Euclides André Mance is a leading theorist and practitioner of solidarity economy. Based in Brazil, he is involved in projects across Latin America and in Italy. His many books include A Revolução das Redes (1999), Como Organizar Redes Solidárias (2003), Filosofia da Libertação (2022), and the seven volume Economia da Libertação, the first volume of which was published in 2023. Most have been translated into Spanish and Italian, but remain unavailable in English.

Based in Calgary, Kenzie Love has served as CWCF’s Communications  Assistant since 2017. A former journalist, he holds an MA in Journalism from Western University, and is pleased to have the chance to employ his research and writing skills with organizations including CWCF, the Canadian Unitarian Council, and Autism Calgary.

Kenzie has appreciated the chance to learn about worker co-ops in his role with the federation, and has particularly enjoyed the opportunity to connect with worker co-op members across Canada through the member profile series he writes for the newsletter.  He hopes that he can make the worker co-op model better known and understood through his work.

In his spare time, Kenzie enjoys reading, pub trivia, choral music, and going for walks with his dog, Louis.
