Shift Change Screening @ United Church

  • movie July 30th @ 6:00 - 8:30 PM
  • United Church Of Rogers Park (1545 w. Morse Avenue)
  • Free Film Screening & Panel Discussion about Worker Owned Cooperatives
  • Lively Stories Of Secure, Dignified Jobs In Demographic Workplace

Surprising given the liberal bent of Rogers Park that there aren't any coops here. There have been rumblings about starting a grocery coop in RP. Looking at Riverwest, Milwaukee a similar type neighborhood (full of lefties & relatively diverse) currently has a bar coopgrocery coopbook coop, and farmers coop

Its about time that the coop movement gained some ground here in Rogers Park. People care more about working and shopping at places they have a stake in. 

This writer makes it up to Milwaukee every so often and is a full fledged member of the Riverwest Coop. A great business that serves the community. Their motto is "Food for people not for profit".
