House Party! A Benefit for Cooperation Texas

September 11th, 2013

Sept_HouseParty_Flyer_FBCooperation Texas, in partnership with Body Rock ATX, will be throwing a 90’s dance party fundraiser inspired by the classic film House Party! Proceeds will go toward our our mission of creating sustainable jobs through the development, support and promotion of worker-owned cooperatives, a business model that puts people and the planet first!

So, do you miss the 90’s? Have you been waiting for a chance to revive your slouch socks and cross colors jacket? It’s time to dust off your roger rabbit and running man and get down. Now is your chance! DJ Chorizo Funk, DJ Mahealani, and Riders Against the Storm will be holding it down and we’ll have local beer on tap from Black Star Co-op Pub & Brewery.

During the party, we’ll also have two competitions:

1. BEST DRESSED: Come out in your flyest early 90’s gear for a chance to win a prize.

2. TEAM DANCE OFF: Teams of two will compete for local prizes on the dance floor. If you’re interested in participating in the team dance off, contact us at info@cooperationtexas.coop.

Suggested donation at the door: $10

No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The Next American Revolution: Beyond Corporate Capitalism & State Socialism

July 25th, 2013
FINAL2-cropped-web

Gar Alperovitz: Historian, political economist, activist, writer

Join us for a screening and discussion of “The Next American Revolution: Beyond Corporate Capitalism & State Socialism”

When: Thursday, August 22 @ 7pm

Where: 5604 Manor Rd.

“While there’s been no shortage of commentary about the structural crisis plaguing the American economic and political system, from wage stagnation and chronic unemployment to unchecked corporate and state power and growing inequality, analyses that offer practical, politically viable solutions to these problems have been few and far between. This illustrated presentation from distinguished historian and political economist Gar Alperovitz is a rare and stunning exception. Pointing to efforts already under way in thousands of communities across the U.S., from co-ops and community land trusts to municipal, state, and federal initiatives that promote entrepreneurship and sustainability, Alperovitz marshals years of research to show how bottom-up strategies can work to check monopolistic corporate power, democratize wealth, and empower communities. The result is a highly accessible look at the current economy and a common-sense roadmap for building a system more in sync with American values.”
