The Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA)┬áis a co-op whose members are worker co-ops, food co-ops, housing co-ops, artist co-ops, credit unions, energy co-ops, and school co-ops in the Philadelphia region. We’re also a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to growing the cooperative economy and building a movement for economic justice.

What is a co-op?

A co-op is a business that is democratically owned and democratically controlled by its members.
