Madison MAN Cooperative members engage in mutually beneficial sharing and exchange, in service to equitable and sustainable communities, and embodying the following practices:
Democratic member control and economic participation
Voluntary and open membership
Mutual aid among mutual aid networks
Transparent, open, and accessible processes
We're developing shared savings pools to provide investment funding for each other's projects and needs, and emergency funds for neighbors in need.
Meeting spaces, tool and expertise libraries, exchange platforms, and a vehicle for cooperative ownership of the things we need, but don't use often or can't afford alone.
Monthly social events for new and existing members, workshops to learn about and create the economy we want, free food and childcare for members and guests, and expert project assistance.
