The only national organization dedicated solely to worker co-op development, the Democracy at Work Institute advances the sector to create a fairer economy and better jobs. The Institute was created by the U.S. Federation of Worker Co-ops to expand worker ownership in a movement that is adequately supported, effective and strategically directed. USFWC is the national grassroots membership organization for worker co-ops, advancing worker-owned, -managed and -governed workplaces through co-op education, advocacy and business development.
