What’s a Co-op?
Did you know Minnesota was one of the first states to enact a law authorizing cooperatives? Today, it is home to the largest number of co-ops in the nation. CRASH+SUES recently had the opportunity to partner with “Cooperative Network,” and Wisconsin-based illustrator, Cicely Combs, to turn their existing educational materials about Co-ops into an animated promotional video. With kudos to C+S animators Allison Howle and Anna Fleissner, Cooperative Network’s 2015 Co-op Month theme, “Take Ownership,” celebrates how the cooperative business model gives consumers and workers a real stake in their economic destinies.
