Closed on 7/20 in solidarity with Strike for Black Lives

The co-op will be closed on Monday, 7/20, in solidarity with
Strike For Black Lives.

“July 20th is a day of reckoning. Across the country, workers will rise up to strike for Black lives. Together, we will withhold our most valuable asset — our labor — in support of dismantling racism and white supremacy to bring about fundamental changes in our society, economy and workplaces. Join us in walking out for justice.”

8:46 Pledge
On Monday at 12 p.m. — for 8 minutes, 46 seconds — walk off your job, take a knee, or hold a moment of silence in memory of George Floyd and others whose lives were taken too soon by police violence.
