The L.A. Co-op Lab is a collective that builds capacity for worker ownership in Los Angeles.
We host a variety of workshops and events where aspiring worker-owners can learn how to start and sustain a cooperative business, together. We are also members of Seed Commons, a financial cooperative made up of a national peer network of co-op developers who are committed to building more distributed ownership and democracy in our respective local economies.
Our aim is to advance worker-ownership as one way to push back against inequality, gentrification, and the gig economy by helping people who are often excluded from good jobs to collectively create their own and meet community needs.
