Here's a Remember George Floyd poster you may like.
The values of Peace, Justice, Equity, and Solidarity are taken from the age old principles of cooperatives. It would be wonderful if we could somehow transition our conversation into what kind of societal values we want to work towards, instead of being stuck in what we fear or prompts us to fight or flee. As we rebuild from the ashes of our previous ambivalence toward equity and privilege, we hope we are able to create multi-stakeholder enterprises like our co-ops, (Hub Bike Co-op, Seward Co-op) in which workers, consumers, investors, communities, and environment are all recognized as essential parts of the business, and, in general, part of a sustainable economic ecosystem that we need for a healthy community.
As we know--especially in this above average conscious city--we're all in this together, and we'll all do better when we all do better. Toward this end, figuring out how we move forward has certainly given me a renewed appreciation of Seward Co-op's end/mission statement of "Seward Co-op will sustain a healthy community with; equitable economic relationships; positive environmental impacts; and inclusive, responsible business practices." I guess the main point is how do we best build this profound rebellion into a compassionate and constructive one.
