The Greater Boston Chamber of Cooperatives includes:

Worker Co-ops: Businesses owned by their employees
Consumer Co-ops: Businesses owned by their costumers
Housing Co-ops: Housing owned by it's residents.

 

Because Cooperatives are member-owned, they:
  • Keep jobs and wealth in local communities.
  • Are more resilient and less likely to lay off workers.
  • Are more accountable to their local community.
  • Can reduce income inequality.
  • Can address market-failures.
  • Provide permanently affordable housing
