The Story

Tightshift Laboring Cooperative’s mission is to model a just, equitable economy, where workers profit from their labor through cooperative ownership. We are a worker-owned laboring service specializing in moving and landscaping services. Through this model, we can use our power to build a world where all communities are free, and nobody needs to spend time behind bars. Our members are primarily formerly incarcerated people and others at risk of entering the criminal justice system. 

As one of DC’s only worker cooperatives, and one built by formerly incarcerated people, this is truly a community effort. In order to grow the number of workers we can hire, we need to purchase a truck, additional landscaping equipment, and insurance. We also need to create opportunities for healing time and space for our members, who have experienced significant amounts of trauma. One of the ways you can support is through your financial contributions, either as a donation, or in exchange for our cleaning, landscaping, and moving services. You can even ‘gift’ these services for loved ones!

We’re aiming to raise $15,000 through grassroots fundraising, and $50,000 in total (we’re already 34% of the way there!).
