Dear friends in the Labor Movement,

The Office of Community Engagement is sponsoring a free lunch for those interested in cooperative businesses!  Please see the details below.  Shauvan Evans will be facilitating.  I hope you are able to join us.  The registration link is at the end of this email.

As you know, I am excited about the possibility of union worker-owned co-ops here in Kentucky and Louisville (modelled on those in Cincinnati and Dayton), and also about UFCW’s recent win at the consumer Good Foods co-operative.

Everyone, please share with anyone you know interested in starting or converting to a co-op.

Finally, I apologize for the mass email nature of this.  I am happy to have seen several of you lately and hope to run into others of you soon!
