About the Ownership Matters Project
Ownership Matters is a donation-supported free publication sponsored by Community Cooperative of Washington, DC.
Our tagline says that we are focused on the emerging landscape around impact investing, racial equity, and the solidarity economy.
That means we’re interested in:
- Profiles of cooperative enterprises, including worker cooperatives, together with other strategies for building wealth that stays in communities.
- Profiles of funders of projects aimed at widening ownership and increasing racial equity.
- Interviews with individuals doing transformative work to create a new social economy.

At its heart, Ownership Matters is for conversation and community. There are Reader Gatherings for live discussion monthly, and here on the site we host space for ongoing comment and exchange, our Editor / Reader Circle (which you’ll need to sign in to go to).
