The Blum Center invites proposals for student research in the area of cooperative economics in order to promote scholarly and public understanding of the principles, practices, and prospects for cooperative enterprise on the Central Coast of California, in the U.S., and worldwide.
Professor Jessica Gordon-Nembhard will share insights from her pathbreaking research to discuss the history and legacy of Black cooperative movements and how they continue to inform on the ground efforts to realize a more just economic future.
The Blum Center stands in solidarity with all Asian Pacific Islander DesiAmerican (APIDA) and Asian members of our campus community. We stand against the overt racism, violence and insidious discrimination currently (and historically) faced by our APIDA and Asian students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of these communities across the United States.
In our February newsletter, we highlight some of our community partners, recap the Blum Center's Forum on the Green New Deal, share several important resources and opportunities related to poverty, inequality and social justice, and more.
