EDUCATE. In others words, groups are a space for people to learn about worker ownership and self-direction of enterprises as a cure for capitalism.
CONNECT. In our view, worker cooperatives offer a solution to many intersectional problems. Therefore, finding and connecting with other leftist groups in your area will help not only their cause, but also yours as a d@w group.
In essence, by launching and consistently operating a d@w group, you help create a positive cultural shift toward workplace democracy and worker ownership in your community.
Please note…We aren’t necessarily looking only for seasoned activists or organizers. Such experience is by no means a requirement and enthusiasm is highly valued!
Here is a how the Application Process will work… 1) You read the d@w Local Groups - Terms and Conditions document. 2) You fill out the d@w Local Group Application Form and send it to the Public Engagement Manager, Liz Phillips at email@example.com 3) Within 1 week of your submission, the PEM will respond. 4) If your application moves to the next step, the PEM will schedule a video call to get to know you more, talk about your city and your ideas of how to get started.5) Within 1 week of your video call, the PEM will respond to let you know if you’ve been approved as a group. You will then also receive your email and logo. 6) You schedule your first meeting, the PEM lists your group and meeting on the website and sends a localized email blast to your area.
Then you’re off!
