The Movement Cooperative (TMC) is an organization founded in 2018 that is based in New York with over 500 affiliated state and local organizations. As a member-led organization that serves to sustainably provide the best available data, technology, and resources to the progressive community, TMC exists to expand access to high-impact resources and to build progressive political strength through cooperative power. In its third year of operations, TMC was looking for a consulting partner to assist with further formalizing its newly established DEI initiatives.
We designed a holistic approach in response to the organization’s need that included qualitative analysis, community mediation, executive coaching, and training and education informed by principles of social justice and movement organizing.
Our 4-month engagement with TMC evolved into a 1 year+ engagement. Our work with TMC has extended into the development of organization-wide on-demand learning complete with learning guides, transcriptions, video replays, and activities for reflection and individual/institutional action through a lens of racial and social justice.
