President Trump signed the reauthorization of the Global Food Security Act last week, codifying through 2023 funding for the critical food security initiative, Feed the Future. NCBA CLUSA was the first Feed the Future implementer in Senegal with the Yaajeende program and continues to work with Feed the Future in Senegal and Indonesia.
NCBA CLUSA is supporting America’s Electric Cooperatives' 2018 Co-ops Vote program by asking members of our bipartisan Congressional Cooperative Business Caucus running for office in November to amplify co-ops in their campaign messaging.
When I ask people to name a few co-ops they are familiar with, they may mention their local food co-op, or a well-known farmer owned brand, or perhaps a worker co-op active in their area. Surprisingly, they often overlook their local credit union, despite the fact that more than 1 in 3 Americans are members of these community-based co-ops.
The transition from top-down corporation to democratically-run cooperative might seem radical, but it's actually a traditional American way of doing business—and it's also at the core of Nathan Schneider's new book, Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition that Is Shaping the Next Economy, according to a Fast Company review.
