Sales of work on this page will support the non-profit organization Collective Remake
COLLECTIVE REMAKE: supports the creation of worker-owned businesses and other kinds of cooperatives with people who have been incarcerated and individuals who are marginalized socially and economically due to race, sex, class, gender identity, age or ability.
For former prisoners, opportunities to find work for a living wage are few. Many employers won’t hire a person with a criminal record despite their ability to do the job. Worker-owned businesses and other kinds of cooperatives can ignite a local economy in communities that are disenfranchised due to the loss of living wage jobs, unfunded social programs, deteriorating schools, over policing and high rates of incarceration.
Collective REMAKE integrates business opportunity with sustainability: concern for community, cooperation, democracy, diversity, equity, mutual support, and the creation of better conditions for future generations.
