From the organizers:
Join us for a timely discussion between experts in cooperative structures moderated by Swette Center Executive Director Kathleen Merrigan.
Younger generations see economic exclusion and inequality, political divisiveness, and are demanding a greater say in the future of food. Could this be a cooperative moment? What can we learn from an examination of the history and current state of the US cooperative movement, which has been so significant to Rural America?
- John and Carol Zippert – Former Federation of Southern Cooperatives, Cooperative Hall of Farmers

- Sarah Tyree – Vice President, Policy and Public Affairs, CoBank
- Doug O’Brien – President and CEO, National Cooperative Business Association, CLUSA International
Following our panel, there will be time for audience participation and a post program reception with rooftop views.
