Session materials from “History of Group Equity Housing Cooperatives,” presented by Jim Jones at NASCO Institute 2016.
This session will cover a history of group housing cooperatives in North America. It will take a look at both student and community based cooperatives, starting in 1873 and continuing to the present. Questions we will address include: How did we all get here? Why aren't there co-ops like ours in other countries? What events in our country have influenced and affected our cooperatives?
