Hi folks – there will be an event happening at the Equal Exchange Cafe on Dec. 2nd
around co-op law, so if you are interested, or know of someone who might
be, please pass this along:
Are you a worker cooperative who could use some help demystifying the law?
Are you a technical assistance provider who would like to connect with
worker cooperatives and learn more about the law yourself?
If so, please join us on Wednesday, December 2nd at 6:30 p.m. to meet
lawyers, law students, and other technical assistance providers who are
working together to create and share valuable resources and information for
worker cooperatives in Massachusetts.
This event will also serve as the official release party for a publication
created by students of Harvard Law School’s Community Enterprise Project of
the Transactional Law Clinics (CEP). In collaboration with Lydia
Edwards, J.D. LLM, Attorney at Greater Boston Legal Services and
Sustainable Economies Law Center Fellow, and Stacey Cordeiro, founder of
the Boston Center for Community Ownership, this document aims to demystify
the intricacies of the law as they relate to worker cooperatives.
Join us over Equal Exchange coffee and tea to learn more about the ways in
which lawyers and other technical assistance providers can assist your
business, as well as to teach us about ways in which we can better address
your cooperative’s needs.
Hope to see you there!
Location: Equal Exchange Cafe, 226 Causeway St., Boston, MA 02114
(accessible from North Station, Green or Orange Line)
*Presentation to begin at 7 p.m.*
