The Center for Community Based Enterprise (C2BE) and Colors Co-op Academy will continue with jointly sponsoring a potluck series to discuss job creation and economic development ideas for broadly empowering the people of Detroit. Participants attending January’s potluck connected with others that are building an alternative economy for a stronger Detroit. The purpose of the potlucks is to foster relationships that will enhance our various respective projects and create the possibilities for future new-economy collaborations. This could be the only reason for the potlucks. Because break bread over good conversation surrounding the work of building a new economy based on human needs is a worthy goal by itself. Some attending January's potluck mentioned we could do more at the potlucks; like show a movie relating to the new economy we are building, learn more about cooperatives, local currents, urban farms, livable wage jobs, worker-owned companies, building neighborhood assets; or reviving productive crafts and local manufacturing to name a few. Those who choose to attend February’s potluck will focus on the agenda of future potlucks. In addition to the focus on future potlucks, Lisa Stolarski will give a short presentation on the history and the deeper meaning of the cooperative movement.
