Community Capital and Cooperatives Contribute to a More Democratic Economy

Devin: What’s your superpower?Mica: Right now, I think what I’m noticing about myself is that I’m able to see situations that people might put a competitive lens on, and I’m able to flip that on its head and see possibilities for cooperation and collectivism.Mica Fisher, the managing director of the National Coalition for Community Capital or NC3, sees both cooperatives and crowdfunding as vital to building a more democratic economy.“The mission of NC3 is to educate, advocate, innovate and promote the development of community capital,” she says. Crowdfunding is a vital tool for building community capital.“Crowdfunding is an excellent tool,” Mica says. “We support it and talk about it all the time. It’s one of the best ways for businesses to get an audience. So we’re huge fans of regulation crowdfunding.”Before joining NC3, Mica worked for the City of New York, supporting the formation of cooperatives. “I am always looking for ways to make our economy feel like our own, to give power back to regular people within the economy and to, what I like to say, democratize the economy,” she says. “We live in a system, political system that we call democracy. Why should our economic system not be democratic as well?”“Cooperatives and community capital are both strong mechanisms for democratizing the economy,” Mica says. “Community capital changes the power structures around how capital flows throughout the economy.”Speaking of the power of cooperatives, she says, “Rather than having a few people at the top of a pyramid make decisions about how the workplace runs, what the policies are, what’s happening on a day to day—on the job, we should make it the workers.”The two approaches pair well, she says. “It’s really both, you know, both mechanisms for democratizing different levels of the economy and different ways that you interact with the economy. I think they’re a beautiful match for that reason.”Mica will be speaking at SuperCrowd22, which we’ll hold on September 15-16. Get your tickets now to connect with her and hear everything she has to share.Mica shared an example of the powerful intersection of cooperatives and crowdfunding: the Drivers Cooperative, which raised over $1.6 million on Wefunder.She shares:I've talked to a lot of these drivers. I always take rides at the drivers cooperative when I can, and it is a really beautiful experience, I think, for them and for me even as a passenger, because you're talking to someone who has an active say in things like hiring. They can go to committees and figure out what's the best pricing structure to to bring down costs for drivers, because that's a huge issue in the industry. There's this weird positioning with consumers versus workers in a capitalist framework for the economy where you say, “Oh, you know, we have to do this because it's better for the consumer experience. And that's how we're going to get we're going to get more customers.”That's often things that cut out or harm workers. I just don't find that to be true. I think that if workers are being treated fairly, you end up getting better service and you have a great experience as a consumer.She shared another example of a New York-based co-op, the Up and Go Cooperative for cleaning services. There's a history of mostly Latino women in New York City where immigrants who took a stand against really exploitative work environments—that's really common here. They realize that by forming cooperatives and managing their own businesses, they can both use economies of scale as well as the more grassroots, cooperative and democratically managed workplaces. So, to kind of combine those two needs, they created the Up and Go Cooperative, which is a cleaning cooperative that's enabled by a tech app. So I could, as a consumer, book a cleaning on my phone the way you could with something like TaskRabbit or these other Silicon Valley owned apps. I can book a cleaning cooperative, and the people that own the app and then manage the app are workers from five worker cooperatives in the city, and they dispatch someone who comes out. I know that I have a worker owner, so someone who truly has a stake in the business and really is being treated fairly and being paid at a higher wage, come into my home and give me a cleaning. I've also had really incredible experiences with that.Co-ops make a difference in worker-owners’ lives. “I’ve heard this from worker-owners all the time, that you get a sense of dignity, and it’s often this sense of autonomy that is just so stripped from so many people in the economy.”“If your schedule isn’t working for you, if you don’t have any time to spend with your family, you can actually talk to the other worker-owners about that and find a way to make it work better for you,” Mica says. “I think that’s something I’ve heard from worker-owners the most, is it’s not just that work-life gets better, it’s that life outside of work gets better because you feel more control in both places.”Mica uses her ability to flip perceptions of competition into opportunities for cooperation and collectivism. This has become a superpower.Get every episode! Subscribe!How to Develop a Cooperative Lens As a SuperpowerWhile managing the City’s Worker Cooperative Business Development Initiative, Mica shifted the paradigm between the city and the co-ops. She says:I tried to take a cooperative approach to how those organizations were interacting with the city, because often it's really hard when you have a city agency managing contracts with nonprofits—nonprofits that are really radical, interested in economic democracy, maybe a very different way of communicating. I really had to shift that idea from a I'm your contract manager who's trying to control what you're doing into a cooperative interaction where it's like, “You know what? The thing is, we actually have the same goal. Why should this be a power over the the contracted organization situation? If we're all here to do the same thing and we want to see the same outcome?”I think that meant a lot more time of listening. I think that's something that doesn't happen a lot today that makes a big difference. More time listening, more time with open space to hear what the needs are of the organization that maybe were not being met before and honest feedback. Sometimes, I think the idea of competition or control comes into play when something is going wrong and there's no practice with other way of doing things. So feedback is absolutely key to that and honest feedback and having the ability to take that feedback and not feel offended by it. So, I think that using all of those practices in that relationship meant that I got a lot done. We started this program with the deputy mayor's office. That wouldn't have happened without that good relationship. I think it led to a lot of successes in the time that I was there.One of the tactics Mica uses to implement cooperative approaches to her work is sociocracy, “a democratic governance structure that focuses on sort of concentric circles of management rather than hierarchies.”To help you develop a cooperative lens, she suggests a series of thought questions to employ when you face a new situation: Is this something that is creating a meaningful experience for the person who has the least power there?Are they learning?Are they growing?Do they feel empowered?Do they feel like this is they have agency and choice?“Asking that series of questions, every time you see a new organization, a new business, a new group of people has helped me reframe my mind and the assumptions I make,” Mica says.By following Mica’s example and her advice, you can make a cooperative lens into a superpower enabling you to do more good.

Regulation crowdfunding is great for two things. First, it helps you get seed capital for your dream business. That can be anything from a couple of thousand dollars to millions if you're lucky enough. However, apart from funding, you can use this money to do more. For example, you can build a cool product or something that changes the world. And today's guest is an excellent example of that!

April 14 is the 15th such day of the year, and this is the equivalent edition of Charlottesville Community Engagement. Both the sonic version and its the textual counterpart seek to bring you to up to date on things you may not yet have known. I’m your host, Sean Tubbs. On today’s program:A Charlottesville minister has become the Democrat’s de facto candidate in the race for the 5th District seat in the U.S. House of RepresentativesMore documents have been filed in a lawsuit seeking to force a House of Delegates race this year Trees have come down on Garrett Street to make way for the redevelopment of Friendship Court Nelson County Board of Supervisors are asked to allow a mobile home park in the rural area to help provide more affordable housing opportunitiesFirst shout-out goes to the Rivanna Solid Waste Authority for e-waste collection dayIn today’s first subscriber supported public service announcement, the Rivanna Solid Waste Authority wants you to know about Electronic Waste Collection Day coming up on April 23, 2022.

Visit rivanna.org for more information.Throneburg becomes Democrat’s default nominee for 5th DistrictOnly one candidate in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District has correctly filed the paperwork required to be on the ballot for the June 21, 2022 statewide primary. That means Democrat Josh Throneburg will face the winner of the May 21 Republican convention in the general election.Neither Warren McClellan nor Andy Parker turned in enough signatures to qualify for the ballot, as Throneburg announced on Twitter on Tuesday. “We just received word a couple of hours ago that I am officially a Democratic nominee for Congress in Virginia’s 5th District.” Throneburg is an ordained minister and small business owner who lives in Charlottesville. He grew up in a small town in Illinois. The candidate raised $270,154 in 2021, according to data collected by the Virginia Public Access Project. Candidates seeking to be in the June 21 primary had until April 7 to turn in ballots to their party for verification. To get on the primary ballot, a candidate needed 1,000 registered voters in the district to sign a petition. A source in the Virginia Democratic Party confirmed a Washington Post report that Parker turned in 1,093 ballots, but only 937 of them were verified as valid. Democrats in all eleven of Virginia’s Congressional districts chose to hold a primary, whereas Republican Committees in only seven chose that route. The other four will hold a convention, including the 5th District. The Republican convention will be held in the Kirby Field House at Hampden-Sydney College. Incumbent Bob Good faces Charlottesville attorney Dan Moy (convention details).As of the end of 2021, Good had raised $518,278 and Moy reported no funds. The next set of campaign reports to the Federal Election Commission are due tomorrow. In his announcement, Throneburg said he believes he can win.“We currently have a Freshman incumbent who is deeply out of touch with the people in this district,” Throneburg said. This will be the first election under the new boundaries of the Fifth District, for which Albemarle County is the northern boundary. New documents filed in Goldman suit to force 2022 House of Delegates electionThe current plan is for the new legislative districts for the Virginia General Assembly to go into effect with next year’s state races, but a lawsuit seeking a race this year is still alive in the federal court. Richmond attorney Paul Goldman sued the Department of Elections last year alleging the results of the 2021 House of Delegates should only be certified for one year because otherwise they would be unconstitutional. In March, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals sent Richmond attorney Paul Goldman’s suit back to the Eastern District of Virginia to determine whether he has the standing to bring the case. On March 25, Goldman submitted a detailed statement that documents his potential candidacy for the 68th House District in 2022 as well as a potential bid for Lieutenant Governor. Paragraph 22 points out that he now lives within the 78th District. (Notice of Additional Facts Relevant to Standing)“The old 68th District no longer exists as a legal entity recognized under the Constitution of Virginia as pointed out by Article II, Section 6 [of the Virginia Constitution],’” reads paragraph 27.“Accordingly, Plaintiff has no representative in the General Assembly that is constitutionally required to represent his interests or been constitutionally selected to be his said representative,” reads paragraph 28.  The Virginia Supreme Court finalized new legislative maps on December 28. On April 1, the Virginia Attorney General’s office filed a motion to dismiss the case once again for lack of standing. Goldman has until April 18 to respond and the defendants have until April 25 to make their reply. Trees come down on Garrett Street to make way for Friendship Court’s first phaseCrews removed several decades-old White Oak trees on Garrett Street this morning as part of a Piedmont Housing Alliance project to redevelop Friendship Court. The trees were removed as part of the first phase of the development, which got underway with a groundbreaking in January. Phase one is being constructed on a former open field. Piedmont Housing CEO Sunshine Mathon said the trees’ removal ended up being necessary due to complex topography involving a waterway that travels below the site.“We were not 100 percent sure until meeting with City staff to finalize sidewalk replacement, utilities, etc. along Garrett,” Mathon wrote in an email to Charlottesville Community Engagement this morning. Mathon said the removal of the trees is an example of a trade-off related to the need for new buildings to be set back from the street. Accommodating the channeled Pollocks Branch reduced the amount of buildable area. “The residents and the rest of the design team were balancing building footprints, number of total units, housing typologies (multifamily + townhomes), a new Community Center and Early Learning Center, ample amounts of open green space (including existing and new tree cover), parking needs, and interconnection with future phases,” Mathon continued. Mathon said the remaining phases should not have similar constraints related to Pollocks Branch and that more of the mature tree canopy in those sections could be preserved. Phase one is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. Mathon also said the wood from the trees will be used to make furniture and other products in the future. Second shout-out goes to CBIC for the WeFunder Pitch nightIn today’s second subscriber supported shout-out, the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council wants you to know about a unique event coming up on April 19 that aims to provide investment opportunities for regular people. CBIC is teaming up with WeFunder for live equity based financing for local start-ups who need capital. Recent changes in regulations allow for the event, where people can invest directly in these companies in exchange for early equity. The event will take place at 4:30 p.m. April 19 at the Irving Theater in the CODE building. Nelson County Supervisors consider Ridgecrest Mobile Home ParkThe Nelson County Board of Supervisors heard from the public Tuesday on a proposal to build a mobile home park near the Ridgecrest Baptist Church on U.S. 29 north of Lovingston. Civil engineer Justin Shimp needed a special use permit for the project. Shimp said he was pursuing the project to help provide more housing that can be affordable to households with lower incomes. “Five years ago, I would not have thought about this and didn’t think it would be needed because of affordability, but such are the increases in cost that achieving housing for folks who don’t make $100,000 a year is very difficult,” Shimp said. Shimp said mobile home parks can be a good way to provide housing at a lower cost.“One can buy a new mobile home so as little as $60,000 to pay to set it up,” Shimp said. “You could then rent a mobile home pad for around $400 a month. That is a much different sort of price point for folks than typical housing stock.”Shimp said under his arrangement, the people who would live there would own a share of the common areas and could sell those shares in the future. “I think this park investor opportunity will be a way for people who historically haven’t been able to set anchor somewhere would be able to buy in and take ownership of that and it will be good for the community,” Shimp said. The Planning Commission voted 4-1 in March on the proposal but set 33 conditions for Supervisors to consider in their review. Several neighbors of the proposed park spoke at the public hearing. One person wanted to know what Nelson County’s standards are for mobile homes and how wastewater would be handled. “Has there or will there ever be done a study on the effects of 51 additional homes on the water source?” asked Larry Shelton. Another person was concerned about the entrance off of U.S. 29. “You have to be very careful with any kind of proposals about how you’re going to get the trailers in there, how is this going to happen, how this is going to affect the residents that are there,” said Tonya Bradley. Another person was concerned that allowing 51 units in the rural area was not acceptable under the Comprehensive Plan. The debate got heated as South District Craig Barton peppered Shimp with questions about the cost of housing. Barton said he was skeptical the trailer park would work. “Have you thought about ways to figure out how to get it so people who live in this country can be able to afford a house?” Barton asked. “What could be done as a builder to help you build a house that a person will know will increase in value in his lifetime?” Shimp said there was little that the Nelson County Board of Supervisors could do. The conversation broke down as West District Supervisosr J. David Parr tried to establish order. Barton said he did not think it was likely that the trailers would increase in value. “The problems of housing are real and we need to deal with those problems,” Barton said. “Whether or not a mobile home will help in solving this problem, I don’t know. I think probably not.” Shimp said there was ample water on the site, and that many of the neighbors would be on the other side of Muddy Creek, which would mean any wells would not affect their groundwater. There were only four Supervisors present when it was time to take a vote as North District Supervisor Tommy Harvey was not in attendance. “There are aspects of this project that I think are positive and admirable, but the density concerns me,” said Central District Supervisor Ernie Reed. Parr supported the project, as did East District Supervior Jesse Rutherford. He is chair of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission and sits on the Regional Housing Partnership. “More often than not the struggle always comes down to how to make something affordable, Rutherford said. “Question always comes down to where is the appropriate place. I’ve found if you put it near an area that’s meant for high density, folks usually may not like it. And if you put it in the middle of nowhere folks might not like it and you’re going to get that perspective no matter which way you look at it.” Rutherford said the only way to attain affordability is through density. He said the Comprehensive Plan update needs to consider this as Nelson considers how to make housing attainable for more people. Given Harvey’s absence, Supervisors opted to continue the matter to the next meeting. That will give Shimp more time to respond to some of the questions asked. Watch the video:Support Town Crier Productions through Ting!Special announcement of a continuing promo with Ting!

Charles and George are joined by filmmaker and writer Kath Tolentino today to chat about lots of topics like AAPI movies, seeking representation, and tech news. Today's big topic is one that's sure to benefit filmmakers starting out: budgeting for independent features. Give this episode a listen for guidance on your next Indie film's budget! In this episode, we talk about… How many streaming services are currently offering carousels of films that supposedly celebrate AAPI Heritage Month (Asian American & Pacific Islander), but the nature of the content they've chosen has been disappointing to say the least. Questions about how they chose the content - should the films be about AAPI issues or have a prominent AAPI actor or director?  How the carousels of AAPI content could have been expanded if more Indie and short films were included. How to know when to hunt for agents or managers once you've created a great short film. Why shorts can generate interest from representation but have a lower ceiling for next steps - representation will always want to immediately know what you can do that will make them money. The roles of agents vs managers, how they differ, and what they do for you. How people perceive that this industry will make them a ton of money, but it's hard to make a lot of income, especially with the amount of money agents and managers take as their cut. Atlas Orion Anamorphic lenses which are great for widescreen and a specific quality.  Atlas's new Limited run of Silver Edition lenses which will allow the flare to match the color of the light. These are super niche lenses and they're going to make 100 sets. What to look for in buying your first set of lenses if you feel overwhelmed by all the review blogs and videos out there. Why creating a budget where you pay people at proper industry scale can be difficult to determine. What ends up happening with most Indie films is that the budget is created backwards from what producers feel like they can realistically raise for the movie. How the schedule is closely intertwined with the budget - the number of days you shoot will alter the costs drastically. Why if you're hiring a line producer, you want to find someone who is used to working on films with a similar schedule to yours. How usually you will have a few factors locked in and will build the rest of the budget around that. Why you need to always build a contingency into your budget and allow more for cast than you think. Using Kickstarter and WeFunder and why there's something to be said for finding a way to make your movie within the confines of a smaller budget.
