COOPERATIVE COMMUNITY OF NEW WEST JACKSON

We NEVER change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

OUR MISSION

The Cooperative Community of New West Jackson (CO-OP NWJ) is a grassroots, resident-led development model that seeks to revitalize West Jackson, MS through an inventive “inside out” strategy.

Our mission is to find sustainable solutions to the chronic economic and social challenges we face by matching residents’ underemployed skillsets and abandoned property resources with a creative placemaking effort that centers on local food production, folk art, and the construction trades.
