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 meet, ask questions and test out their ideas. We work closely with emerging co-ops to help develop and grow their business. We are part of a national peer network of co-op developers and members of a financial cooperative that is committed to building more distributed ownership and democracy in our local economy.
Our aim is to advance worker-ownership as one way for people who are often excluded from good jobs to collectively create their own and meet community needs.
