Jennifer Welles is the Cooperative Coordinator and Housing Developer at Northern Manhattan Improvement Corporation, where she is developing both low income housing cooperatives and a worker cooperative.  Recently she organized the first worker cooperative in Washington Heights, Ecomundo Cleaning, a green cleaning company, which was launched in April 2012. We will watch a clip of the film “Shift Change”.
