LACE is a non-profit developer committed to fostering an ecosystem of cooperative social enterprises built on racial and economic equity. We believe that community-owned and governed businesses are a pathway to bring wealth and power to neighborhoods and people that have faced systemic exclusion.

 

Our first major initiative is bringing the Louisville Community Grocery (LCG) vision to life. We are building the LCG as a cooperatively-owned grocery store that supports neighborhoods abandoned by large supermarket chains. Our locally owned grocery will provide fresh, healthy, affordable food through just and equitable practices, employment, and ownership.

 

LACE is an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to promote diversity and inclusion and ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, socioeconomic status, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

 

LACE is committed to affirmatively promoting diversity and inclusion in all of our work and our internal policies and practices. LACE does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, socioeconomic or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, partnering with other organizations, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, project development and decision-making, and provision of services.
