Cooperative Economics Alliance of New York City

Closing the racial and gender wealth gap through cooperation

 

The traditional economy doesn't serve you.

That’s why New Yorkers have formed over 2000 organizations to adopt a better model, where the people who live, work, grow, and learn within an organization share equally in its management and benefits. Whether we focus on housing, banking, food, workplaces, or schools, together we form a solidarity economy.

Find the resources you need to transform the way our city does business.

Member Spotlight: Samira Rajan

“Sharing ought to be an option alongside the more exclusive or individual ownership that capitalism requires. Capitalist structures tend to crowd out any space for other types of structures, ones which are not built around the singular accumulation of wealth. I think of ‘solidarity economy’ as a way to talk about all these other possible structures, like cooperatives.”

– Samira Rajan, CEO and President of Brooklyn Cooperative Federal Credit Union
