Creating Anti-Racism Resources for Co-ops

A current member of NASCO's Co-op Leadership Cohort, Della Moran, is seeking input from cooperators within NASCO's network to get a sense of how competent our current co-op structures are to deal with racism and discrimination, and how competent individual co-op members feel in knowing how to address situations given the current structures. Share your experience by filling out the survey here.
