[Editor's note: The Raise-Op housing cooperative is an organization in Lewiston-Auburn, Maine, that offers democratically controlled housing to its members and organizes residents to build equity for themselves and the greater community.   The video below was created for a crowd-funding campaign the co-op ran at the end of 2015.  In January of 2016, Raise-Op announced that they had raised 112% of their on-line fundraising goal!  You can learn more about Raise-Op and find out how to get involved on their website.]
