The Practice of Democracy in Our Daily Lives
This election season, we are hearing candidates and activists calling to “save” or “protect” our democracy. Here at PACA, as a cooperative organization, democracy is one of our core values. But what does it mean—really—to practice democracy? What does it mean to engage, to participate, beyond the ballot box? How can we foster cultures and institutions (including workplaces) that value this?
Join us as we welcome two very special guests for this conversation: Amethyst Carey of the Center for Economic Democracy and Suparna Kudesia of CoFED (the Cooperative Food Empowerment Directive).
