Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy

Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy (BRED) helps worker co-ops in the greater Baltimore area get the capital they need to start and grow. Their non-extractive lending process prioritizes inclusion and equity rather than locking communities out of the funding they need to start owning their economy. By combining the financing they offer with technical assistance and cooperative mentoring they support worker-owned businesses and give them a chance to thrive.
