Worker Collectives for Generative Justice


How do marginalized people self-organize? Generative Justice provides an outline of self-empowerment for marginalized members of society, which takes many forms. Consensus-based worker collectives are one such form of Generative Justice, providing unalienable coownership of an organization. However, despite being a seemingly powerful form for Generative Justice, worker collectives remain a severely under-researched topic. This article aims to provide a platform which clarifies the terminology and concepts relevant to worker collectives, but also to utilize anecdotes, as a founder of three consensus-based worker collectives for transgender women, in order to demonstrate how consensus-based worker collectives are a feasible, effective model for Generative Justice. I also include specific implementations of, and the tools for, worker collectives for Generative Justice.
