Philadelphia, PA: Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance

Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance

Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance is an heir to Philadelphia cooperative history that dates back to 1752.  Many years later…

“1971: Movement for a New Society is created; Mariposa Food Co-op opens; Life Center Association founded

“One group combining personal and political struggle was the Movement for a New Society, a network of small autonomous living collectives in seven cities, working for non-violent radical social change. They came out of the anti-war movement in 1971 and were active in the anti-nuclear movement.

“The largest MNS center was Philadelphia, with about a hundred members in twenty communal houses in 1979.” (Curl, see below for citation) This center became the Life Center Association and still exists today. Read more about the history of the LCA on their website. There’s a great book by Andrew Cornell called Oppose and Propose: Lessons from Movement for a New Society. Check it out here.”
