Sociocracy and the Solidarity Economy at the Community Purchasing Alliance Cooperative

Amy Abbott, Boris Sigal, and Lauren Greenspan have begun exploring this topic with us at the 2022 Global Sociocracy Conference.

The Community Purchasing Alliance is advancing the solidarity economy with the power of cooperative purchasing, shifting $17.9M to minority business enterprise (MBE) since 2017. Our 11 person team is distributed across the US and is powered by sociocratic circles. In this showcase, we will share how CPA Co-op’s circle structure has grown and evolved since 2020, facilitating 47% year over year growth in revenue in 2021 while creating a more dynamic and equitable workplace for our entire team.

We invite you to continue the conversation here. (See their presentation page for additional information about their original presentation.)
