The Riverwest Co-operative Alliance recently announced Co-op Fest 2016, themed “Our Cooperative Communities,” would be held Saturday, Oct 8.

The Riverwest-based festival will feature workshops, panels and discussions on all aspects of the cooperative movement, as well as food and music.

This year’s festival will celebrate the five and 15-year anniversaries of the Riverwest Public House and Riverwest Food Co-op & Cafe, respectively—and acknowledge the continued challenges the local cooperative movement faces as it works for racial, economic and environmental justice.

The day’s workshops and panels will be loosely organized into Co-op Basics, Centering Justice and Co-op Economics, with Ann Reynolds of the UW Center for Cooperatives will be giving a lunch keynote, among other presentations throughout the day.

Individual attendance is $20 ($15 if pre-registering online). Volunteer opportunities are available for those unable to afford the cost.

Information on registration, tabling and sponsorship can be found here.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
