Community Enterprise & Solidarity Economy Clinic
Our Mission Heading link
We represent worker-owned cooperative business, non-profit, or small business that operates for the benefit of an underserved community.
Community enterprises exist to change the way we work and to empower people to take control of their own quality of life. The solidarity economy means regular people working for themselves and each other. Our clients often promote equity, practice democratic decision-making, and build sustainability in their neighborhoods.
