The USFWC is proud to announce its inaugural cohort of fellows for the Worker Ownership State Advocacy Fellowship!

The Worker Ownership State Advocacy (WOSA) Fellowship is a pilot program of the U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives that equips and supports worker owners as advocates and spokespeople for worker co-op initiatives in their home state.

Two fellows from each state have been selected on an invitation-basis, in tandem with federation partner recommendations.

The states included in the pilot program are:

  • California
  • Illinois *
  • Massachusetts
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania *
  • Colorado

* Cross-state team

We look forward to working with these worker-owners from across the U.S. to build up advocacy skills within the worker co-op movement, build a peer network of experienced spokespeople who can illustrate the strength of worker ownership as a solution for economic justice, and to help the USFWC build a strong infrastructure for collective advocacy and policy-making.
