Topic For Friday, June 6th, 2014:
THE GATEKEEPER’S COLLECTIVE ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT MODEL, II

Having conceived a number of potential for-profit business models during last month’s Economic Empowerment workshop, the TGC board have synthesized several good ideas and chosen a couple of models for the community’s consideration.  Let’s see if:

- Working collectively, building a for-profit economic empowerment vehicle, we can render the notion of ‘crabs in a barrel’ a myth.

- We can create a system under which we generate capital for ourselves and our community, while solving a community challenge.

- Cooperative economics is not just a lofty ideal, but, a reality for Black people.

- We can muster the discipline, self-respect and love necessary to mount a revolutionary economic engine for the SGL community.

If you believe these propositions are valid or, you’re just curious about what might happen if we exert the effort, join us at The Gatekeeper’s Collective (TGC) caucus on Friday, June 6th @ 8 pm at JMG’s Safe Space as we reveal the winning models of the Economic Empowerment Workshop challenge, identify stakeholders, and chart steps towards building a for-profit TGC business.
