Event description
Celebrating 50 Years: Seward Co-op within the Broader Movement for Abolition and Liberation

About this event

Join us on Tuesday, October 26 via Zoom from 6:30-8 p.m. for the Annual Co-op Owner Meeting. As we begin a year of celebrating our 50th anniversary as a co-op, we’ll reflect on who we are as part of a broader cooperative movement working for justice and the abolition of oppressive systems.

Our 2020 meeting featured a dynamic panel of artists and activists; and as a co-op we expressed our shared intention to articulate a vision of community that is free from white supremacy. Through conversation, song, and movement, the panel centered on the co-op’s role in the movement for racial justice and liberation in our communities—a movement that holds parallel values of abolition with cooperative history and principles.

This year’s meeting will feature Jessica Gordon Nembhard, Professor of Community Justice and Social Economic Development in the Department of Africana Studies at John Jay College, City University of New York and author of Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice. Jessica will join Seward Co-op owners, BOD members and local co-op innovators in conversation about how co-ops can be a manifestation of abolition.

The event will kick-off a year of exploring our own evolution as a co-op over the past 50 years—and who we want to be 50 years in the future.

Please RSVP via Eventbrite. You will receive a link to the meeting prior to the event.
