The Cooperative Projects Organizer will be responsible for supporting the implementation, activity, and evaluation of two key projects: study circles and Community Voices. For the study circles, PACA will lead seven groups through a 6-month study circle focused on incubating cooperative enterprises to address public space and housing equity and ownership issues. Through the Community Voices Project, PACA will engage Bonfire to create short videos comprising oral histories of co-ops and perspectives on solidarity economy solutions, and then work with our partners to facilitate outreach and education events using this content.
The Cooperative Projects Organizer will work closely with and be supported by PACA staff to carry out these programming efforts. This position is funded by the Independence Public Media Foundation and the William Penn Foundation.
