Strategizing for Racial Justice in the Cooperative Movement

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Can you imagine a mainstream cooperative movement taking bold risks for racial justice? We’ll practice using a campaign strategy chart together to make that dream real. We will build on the brilliance emerging from Network Gatherings earlier in the week and discuss strategies to: amplify the leadership of cooperators of color; dismantle white supremacy within coop institutions; and put coop resources where they will most rapidly foster racial justice. We'll share stories about how coops support and inhibit racial justice movements, pinpoint key leverage points in the coop movement, and commit to action.
