Co-op Day at the California Capitol

Please join us and the California Center for Co-op Development (CCCD) in promoting increased awareness and understanding of cooperatives, and their local and national impacts during Co-op Day at the Capitol March 15, 2016. 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 promotes and celebrates 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 March 15, 2016 from 9:30am to 1:30pm. We will set up on the North Side of the Capital (L 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.

Individual supporters are invited to attend the event and schedule a time to visit their legislator to let them know about co-ops. We will provide you with co-op information that you can share during your visit. Co-ops, co-op associations, and nonprofit co-op support organizations are encouraged to table/exhibit (it's free!) and also visit legislators.
