Cooperative Portland is for people interested in co-ops and workplace democracies in the Portland Metro area.
Benefits: to get together and talk with other people in cooperatives for perspectives, and help each other out.
We’re starting casually: the first meeting is being planned, and this website is going up.
Context: There used to be a Portland group called PDXPCI – Portland Project for Cooperative Innovation, which hasn’t been active for more than a year. There’s the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives – the first two organizations to be on this site are members. There’s ic.org for intentional communities.
