Sharing stories of cooperation and community action


Shared Capital Cooperative is connecting you to the voice of cooperators around the country through a new video series: Shared Stories.

Through Shared Stories, Shared Capital’s members tell their stories of cooperation – how they joined together to meet needs and create impact. How are people working together to overcome lack of dignified employment? Secure and affordable housing? Safe and healthy food?

Shared Capital is getting the stories directly from its members and bringing them to you. They will be releasing video footage in October, December and February. Subscribe to their YouTube channel to get instant alerts when they release new material.

The first feature in this new series highlights ChiFresh Kitchen, a Chicago-based women and minority owned worker cooperative providing fresh and healthy options to the city’s south and west sides. Watch founding member of ChiFresh Kimberly Britt talk about opening a co-op during the pandemic, growing to meet need and buying their own building with the support of Shared Capital.
