Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy (BRED) will be hosting our second Worker Cooperative Jumpstart! It will be a day long series of workshops focused on establishing and running worker cooperatives. We have something for everyone. So whether you've been a worker-owner for years, are thinking about starting a co-op, or just want to learn more this event is for you! Organizations and individuals welcome!
We are asking for a suggested donation of $1-25 per person to cover the cost of the event and lunch. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Please register at:
We will be gathering at the 2640 Space. 2640 is a collectively run radical events space in Baltimore, MD. The building is accessible and near several major bus routes. It is located inside St. Johns United Methodist Church at 2640 St. Paul Street Baltimore, MD 21218. Please contact us if you have any questions about the venue.
