The Democracy at Work Institute is an affiliate organization of the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives, the national grassroots membership organization for worker cooperative businesses. The USFWC established the Institute, a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, to ensure that worker cooperative development in economically and socially marginalized communities is adequately supported, effective, and strategically directed. We work together closely on strategic initiatives. To learn more about the USFWC, please visit:
