Q&KOA represents the leading edge of a new and exciting movement to integrate large-scale cooperatively owned business enterprises into the economic landscape of Black communities. This strategic innovation is vitally necessary and has proven to be effective in other communities globally.
WHAT WE DID BEFORE
WE WILL DO IT AGAIN
Q&KOA is an acronym for Us Ruling our own Nation, a global economic empowerment organization designed to change the way we do business with and among ourselves and with others. Our primary objective is to put in place a federation of successful Group Owned businesses that give us the capacity to gain significant control of the economics of our communities and nations, and to help free us from the current state of economic domination and exploitation by multiple forces in the world.

HOW OUR SYSTEM WORKS
As members and owners, we pool our resources; both human and material.
What We Do With Resources:
We use our collective resources to intervene in the economic life of our communities by building and maintaining Group Owned Enterprises that provide needed goods and services, create jobs and produce a surplus.
What We Do With The Surplus:
After reinvestment, we do two (2) things with surplus gained from Co-op business activity:
Provide Charity/Endowments to causes we care about, especially concerning our youth.
Provide a benefit to qualified workers and members.
How We Grow:
We reinvest a large percentage of net surpluses for growth and stability. Our vision is large-scale and intergenerational.
