Tickets Available online: www.praxispeace.org/events or call 707-939-2973

Sponsored by Praxis Peace Institute, Dominican University, and Mondragón University Team Academy

What can our economic future look like? Explore this timely question with students and faculty from Team Academy in Mondragon, Spain & the Mondragon Cooperative Corporation (MCC), a $24 billion worker-owned cooperative of 120 businesses. Living principled commitments to both customers and workers, the Mondragon Cooperatives and Bay Area worker-owned businesses promote innovation, participative democracy, social transformation, and "the subordinated nature of capital." This is an economic model for now and the future. It is sustainable, socially just, and environmentally responsible.

Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey will provide the opening remarks. Don't Miss this Opportunity to Learn about Viable and Proven Alternatives to Business as Usual!
