I wanted to share with you a new bilingual English/Spanish resource for folks in the 5 boroughs. Cooperative Economics Alliance of NYC (CEANYC, pronounced scenic) has just produced a directory (with all known contact information) for the more than 2000 solidarity economy groups operating here. That includes childcare co-ops, credit unions, community gardens, CSAs, food co-ops, worker co-ops, low-income housing co-ops, community land trusts, and some misc co-ops all identified by type and borough.
We did this because CEANYC supports co-ops and solidarity economy groups to connect with each other to build economic and political power. Most of the groups in the directory aren’t active online so we needed a print resource to help groups find each other’s goods, services, spaces, and offerings. You might use them to target potential customers, research the solidarity economy, or find out who else in your neighborhood is building alternative institutions. We’d love to hear how they are helpful or what we can do better. 🙂
