Celebrated by cooperatives nationwide during the month of October, National Co-op Month is an annual opportunity to raise awareness of a trusted, proven way to do business and build communities. Under the theme “Build Back for Impact,” this year’s Co-op Month is also a chance to leverage our shared cooperative identity in the face of some of the biggest challenges we face: a global pandemic, climate emergency and systemic racism. As we build back an economy that works for everyone, our biggest impact comes from embracing the values and principles that make us truly unique.
Throughout the month of October, we will celebrate what makes the co-ops unique by sharing stories of other co-ops and focusing on economic changes that keep more money in local communities. Watch our Facebook page all month long to follow along in this journey and be a part of the conversation.
