Please join us in promoting increased awareness and understanding of cooperatives, and their local and national impacts during Co-op Day at the Capitol, June 25, 2014.
California cooperatives create employment, bring food to our tables, and provide essential services like healthy food, financial services, housing, and child care. We need to promote this vital, democratic business and organizational model!
There are nearly 30,000 U.S. cooperatives that generate over $650 billion in revenue, $75 billion in wages and benefits, and account for over 2 million jobs. Still, there is little public awareness about where and how cooperatives operate. Co-op Day at the Capitol is a way to promote and celebrate our many cooperatives and their benefits.
California Co-ops will gather to promote our movement and its enterprises at Co-op Day at the CA State Capitol on June 25, 2014 from 9:30am to 1:30pm. We will set up on the South Side of the Capital (N &10th Street) for all participants to engage and inform the public and legislators. Please join us to make a strong showing and demonstrate the diversity and strength of our state's cooperatives, and spread the word to invite friends and colleagues.
