Younger generations see economic exclusion and inequality, political divisiveness, and are demanding a greater say in the future of food. Could this be a cooperative moment? What can we learn from an examination of the history and current state of the US cooperative movement, which has been so significant to Rural America? Join us for a timely discussion between experts in cooperative structures moderated by Swette Center Executive Director Kathleen Merrigan. Following our panel, there will be time for audience participation and a post program reception with rooftop views.

This event is cosponsored by National Cooperative Business Association, CLUSA International.

Please note that the event is from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. EST – make sure your calendar updates correctly.
