Cooperative Journal Podcast

Ebony Gustave

Ebony (she/her) is a community organizer, cultural preservationist, and storyteller. They are the founder of the Cooperative Journal podcast, an archive of interviews spotlighting how people are collectivizing to meet their needs within the solidarity economy. As a co-steward of its multimedia umbrella, they are bridging the gaps between political education, imagination, co-creation, and actualization. Within their community, they challenge access to care through organizing pay-it-forward models, donation-based wellness pop-ups, and a free 24/7 herbal medicine cabinet. The common thread between all of her work is bringing awareness to collective solutions that are harmonious with nature, people-centered, and cultivates agency.
