David Morgan-How Worker Owned Cooperatives Can Provide a Viable and Just Economy
ENVISION THIS: Viable and just alternatives for meeting our economic and social needs, including worker power, community resilience, self-help and solidarity, through worker owned cooperatives. David Morgan works to promote democratic ownership of businesses and a cooperative economy that can be achieved through organizing, education, and research. His work promoting a new economy involves coordinating partnerships and cross-sector alliances with all manner of member- and worker-owned enterprises and their support networks. He serves on the boards of the Data Commons Cooperative and the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives, for whom he is convening a member council on policy and advocacy. David co-owns The Toolbox for Education and Social Action (TESA), a worker-owned cooperative. ?We create imaginative and experiential resources that transform the way people think, learn, teach, work, and act. These resources address social change, economic justice, and progressive education through critical thinking and user participation.? The TESA mission is to make people’s lives more just and democratic through the use of participatory education.
