Keep spreading the word! Tell all of your fellow cooperators about this exciting bill, and encourage them to join the campaign at www.campaign.coop !
Congressman Fattah needs your help to pass this important legislation! He's working hard to build support for the bill, both in DC with his colleagues in Congress, but also by speaking directly with Cooperators like us!He recently spoke at 3 co-op conferences; in Boston at the National Worker Cooperative Conference, in Philadelphia at the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance Conference, and the Consumer Cooperative Management Association.
"If you do the work (by advocating for this bill), you will be rewarded with even more work (developing lots of co-ops!)"
