Members of Coop DC will be talking about their upcoming conference, DC Coop Day, on two radio programs today.
Coop DC members Ajowa Nzinga Ifateyo and Johanna Bockman will be on WPFW this morning around 11am. Councilmember and former mayor Marion Barry is scheduled to call in around 11:30am. They are hoping to ask him about his Commission on Cooperative Economic Development starting in 1980, his work with Cornbread Givens, and his thoughts on cooperative development today.
At 9pm EST tonight, Occupy DC’s “Voices of the 99%” radio program will interview Coop DC members Zachari J. Curtis and Ajowa Nzinga Ifateyo, and UDC’s Calvin Lewis about DC Co-op Day, cooperatives and urban food systems, the potential for cooperation in low-income community, the connections between international and local cooperatives, and the business development aspects of cooperatives. “Voices of the 99%” is a call-in program podcast live over the Internet.
We hope you’ll tune in to one or both!
