Worker Cooperative Summit

June 19, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

What If We Created a Multi-Stakeholder Cooperative Bakery that Offers Former Inmates, Their Families, and Our Community a Fresh Start?

As a restorative community we can partner in ensuring the successful reintegration of former inmates and launch a magnetic, leading edge, fun, and thriving new economy business.

We are on a journey to engage the community in dynamic ways in the founding, funding, and thriving of a fun, whole-life, multi-stakeholder cooperative bakery for former inmates.

Would you like to be part of creating this new economy business that fosters a holistic approach to developing work and life skills for former inmates and their families? Working from restorative community development practices we can partner with former inmates as they reintegrate into community. Let’s create a coop embraced and celebrated by our community members through their participation and patronage.

A small group of citizens, with the support of community organizations, are hosting a half-day summit to connect, learn, and make plans to launch a cooperative bakery owned and operated by former inmates and other community members.

If you would like to:

  • Cultivate a space that nourishes community and demonstrates we all have gifts and skills
  • Create something that speaks loudly of hospitality and hosts community members of all ages
  • Experience a restorative, sustainable, and cooperative approach to welcoming former inmates into healing and community
  • Make a difference in people’s lives by purchasing fresh baked goods from the coop
  • Launch a business that helps to heal our community
  • Stand at the ribbon-cutting celebration of its opening
