Launch of the Black Co-ops for Change Series w/ The Cross Atlantic Chocolate Collective
Published on November 26, 2022 by Omar Freilla
We launched a series of Zoom calls to profile Black cooperatives making an impact in their communities and industries under the name "Black Co-ops for Change". We held our first session this month, profiling the incredible work of our member, the Cross Atlantic Chocolate Collective. It was an incredibly inspiring session highlighting the power of empowering chocolate producers with knowledge and skills that have been held closely by colonial powers since the dawn of the transatlantic slave trade.
Look out for our next Black Co-ops for Change event highlighting another member cooperative, Solar Uptown Now Services, Dec 13th.
