All Things Co-op: Interview with the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance

After two seasons as a podcast, All Things Co-op is making the leap to video! 
For those of you prefer audio, we've got you covered. ATC will still be available as a podcast.

In this interview we talk with Jamila Medley, the Executive Director of the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA), about her work catalyzing the growth and popularity of worker co-ops particularly within communities of color in Philadelphia, how worker co-ops represent a viable alternative to a capitalist system in decline, and more.

Jamila Medley is the Executive Director of PACA where she provides support for leadership development, cooperative economics education, navigating group dynamics and creating adaptive systems to support group process and learning. She was the 2018 Philadelphia Community Fellow for the Shared Economics in Equitable Development Fellowship, serves on the board of directors for Movement Alliance Project (formerly Media Mobilizing Project), on the advisory board for An Economy of Our Own, and is a consultant with Columinate.

The Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA) is a cooperative whose members are co-ops in the Philadelphia region. PACA is also a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to growing the cooperative economy.
