Many thanks to everyone who has supported our $20k-for-20-Years campaign. We’ve been thrilled and touched by the support the campaign has received in celebrating the accomplishments of the last 20 years and building the movement for the next 20.
With $1000 left to go to meet our goal, we had initially intended to wrap up this campaign this month. We still plan to do that, but we ask that that $1000 in donations be made to organizations supporting Black lives instead. CW has committed another $1000 to match donations to Black Lives Matter several Black-led co-op developerment organizations including: Mississippi Association of Cooperatives, Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance, and Center for Community-Based Enterprise. We ask that if you donate to these organization, you send your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know to match them. We need to listen to, support, and resource Black people and communities if we are ever to acheive a fully just, sustainable, and equitable economy. This is a small initial step we are taking as we examine the full spectrum of ways in which we need to show up, support, and re-center.
Please see our full statement in support of Black Lives. We have also organizaed a list of organizations to support right now and moving forward, as well as a list of antiracism resources.
Thank you for your support.
Black Lives Matter.
