Rebecca Kemble, President of the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives Board and of CICOPA North America has won a seat on the Madison Common CounciI, the capital city of the state of Wisconsin and is home to one of the highest concentrations of cooperatives in the US.
“I am so proud to have had the support of many people in the cooperative movement from all over the world, as well as hundreds of grassroots volunteers in Madison who are excited to help build more cooperative businesses and political structures in our city. The friendship and solidarity we have built with each other based on building a more just and humane world has been a motivating factor in my seeking political office. Linking all of our local efforts together through our CICOPA networks is an important way to “scale” the movement. I’m proud to be one small part of this.”, Rebecca says.
