This training, hosted by the Reinvest in Our Power Workgroup of CJA, took place from May 16-19 at the Occidental Arts & Ecology Center in Occidental, California, which is the territory of the Pomo and Coast Miwok (Federated Tribes of the Graton Rancheria). It was an orientation and exploration into the work of how we can finance our visionary Just Transition projects in a way that confronts capitalism and intervenes in the very nature of finance. Representatives from CJA member groups learned from each other about creating non-extractive revolving loan funds and engaging in other ways of financing JT projects, discussed how to support self-sustaining projects, such as worker and community owned cooperatives, and became familiar with the National Financial Cooperative that CJA has been actively involved in co-creating since 2014.
