About Us

The TESA Collective (The Toolbox for Education and Social Action) is an award-winning organization that creates educational resources and programs for social and economic change. We are a worker-owned cooperative. This means that each worker has one equal ownership share of the company and one equal vote in its governance.

Over the past five years, we have helped dozens of organizations and movements achieve their mission through the development of social justice-based education tools and efforts. We’ve collaborated nationwide: in NYC, California, Phoenix, Chicago, Seattle, Connecticut, and much more. The groups we’ve teamed up with have been locally focused as well as national operations, and we’ve worked on issues ranging from building the cooperative movement, immigrant rights, anti-war efforts, environmental justice, and more. See a small sample of our collaborations here.

Our other primary effort is creating tools for social and economic change in house, which we then distribute. This includes games such Co-opoly: The Game of Cooperatives, Loud & Proud, and our in progress game RISE as well as books, teaching guides, and more. Visit our website to find out more about us.
