Repaired Nations Mission


Our Mission at Repaired Nations is to educate, organize and empower low income Black youth in the Bay Area to launch cooperative enterprises for sustainable economic security through shared ownership and control of housing and businesses.

REPAIRED NATIONS creates redress for historic trends of oppression through cooperative training and development for collective ownership. Initially, REPAIRED NATIONS focuses on building wealth in Black communities by giving youth the tools needed to remain rooted: access to land and access to capital. Book clubs, Workshops, and Trainings will educate and inspire communities to engage in cooperative effort, while giving grounded, practical skills for collective ownership.

We repair the effects of colonization and oppression by helping to weave interconnected communities into thriving, sustainable networks to equitably provide the essentials of life.

We value cooperation, simplicity, patience, and compassion, never straying from these in our pursuit of ecologically sustainable development in under-resourced communities.

Repaired Nations is a fiscally sponsored project of Sustainable Economies Law Center

Work Based Learning

Work based learning program

REPAIRED NATIONS’ Work Based Learning program supports Black Youth & Young Adults (16 – 34) in economically depressed neighborhoods, like East Oakland and North Richmond, who have historically been targeted and lead astray by school to prison pipelines, lacked employment and ownership opportunities in their communities, been victimized by police terrorism, and suffered the horrendence effects of gang violence.

This project simultaneously supports incoming workers and existing culture-based cooperatives and worker self-directed non profits, in disadvantaged populations. We lead skill building for incumbent workers and owners at these ventures, supporting high-achieving founders to equitably distribute responsibility and income distribution.

This 6 month program is designed with three pathways into cooperatives and collectives that are culturally-relevant, led by instructors who have the awareness and patience necessary to help Youth & Young Adults thrive. Repaired Nations helps build the soft and hard skills necessary for people to become future co-owners of cooperative enterprises. Navigation & transitional employment opportunities will support marginalized youth and underemployed adults to clarify their life’s vision, inherent talent, & the community issue that they want to have a hand in cooperatively solving.

Black Cooperative Development

Our Chosen Approach

Initially, REPAIRED NATIONS focuses on building wealth in Black communities by giving youth the tools needed to remain rooted: access to land and access to capital. Bookclubs, Workshops, and Trainings will educate and inspire communities to engage in cooperative effort, while giving grounded, practical skills for collective ownership.

Immediate Goal: To educate youth of color in California about cooperative enterprise and develop necessary infrastructure for cooperative development in under-resourced, disadvantages communities.

Quality Over Quantity

We repair the effects of colonization and oppression by helping to weave interconnected communities into thriving, sustainable networks to equitably provide the essentials of life.

Specializing in consultation, training, education, research, and development, REPAIRED NATIONS incubates start up cooperative organizations and provides much needed capacity to under-resourced communities organizations.

We are guided by the cooperative successes seen across the globe: Black Cooperatives in the US during the 19th Century (read Collective Courage) and today, Italy’s cooperative approach to unemployment, MONDRAGON’s multi-billion dollar annual revenue, South America’s recuperation movement of abandoned factories, Indigenous lending circles . . .
