Duplicating Cleveland’s revitalizing co-ops

Rochester NY is hoping to duplicate the success of Cleveland’s famous co-ops, which have helped revitalize the downtown in a way that creates equitably-distributed new wealth.

Inspired by the success of Cleveland’s Evergreen Cooperatives, officials from Rochester, New York, will visit the Midwest city this week to look into how the job-making, wealth-creating worker co-op initiative might work on tackling poverty in Rochester.

In her recent State of the City address, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren noted that co-ops are one of the most promising routes to eradicating poverty in the city.
