  1. Free film and webinar about co-ops, an alternative economy framework. A Silent Transformation — film viewing Oct. 5–Oct. 12; webinar Oct. 12. The modern economy increasingly denies people basic amenities for a decent life. This documentary shows how the co-operative model is as critical as ever. Registration is required to view the film and attend the webinar -
  2. New report about alternative economy practices. This Center survey asked Americans about their perspectives on our current economy, their knowledge and acceptance of economic alternatives to capitalism, and the role corporations play in shaping a sustainable future. 60% of Americans support alternative economy practices like sharing, banking at credit unions, shopping at co-ops and giving to mutual aid networks, but face financial and logistical barriers to participation.
