About Us

We are on the brink of a larger mass movement ready to demand democracy at work as an alternative solution to capitalism. This movement can be successful if we are willing to work toward a solution that supports and empowers workers in their respective enterprises. We want to help support those interested in organizing and mobilizing this movement for Worker Owned Self Directed Enterprises. 

Democracy now!

It takes the action and advocacy of everyday community leaders to influence policy, politics and culture; as an active member of a group, you are jumping into the front lines of this movement in your community. Join us as we learn how to advocate and promote democracy at work in our own workplaces and communities. 

Democracy at Work is a project, begun in 2010, that aims to build a social movement. The movement's goal is transition to a new society whose productive enterprises (offices, factories, and stores) will mostly be Worker Self Directed Enterprise's, a true economic democracy.

D@W Melbourne is a local chapter of this project to develop a social movement for economic and work place democracy.
