Presentation by Layla Oghabian and Vivian Onuoha (Berkeley Student Cooperative alumni and NASCO Board members) for the Berkeley Student Cooperative membership in Fall 2012.
In 2012, the Berkeley Student Cooperative (BSC) performed a survey of the socio-demographics of its entire membership. The survey had an overall response rate of 73% (1,256 members). The survey document, the survey results, and multiple presentations/ analyses of the survey results are attached. The BSC intends to conduct on a periodic basis in order to have more definitive data on their membership over time.

In the 1880s, the Knights of Labor, known as largest labor union in the world at the time, organized a network of almost 200 industrial cooperatives across the United States. Today, the presence of labor unions is at an all-time low. Meanwhile the cooperative movement continues to grow, but in whose best interest? This resource will explore the history of food cooperatives within the broader context of cooperative and labor movements as well as workers rights in food consumer cooperatives.
