15 people responded Yes to the check poll about tomorrow's Meet You Social.Coop Ops Teams event.

I really hope people who are new to Social.Coop or curious about how we operate will come to the meeting.

Tuesday, July 19th, 08:00-09:30 MDT (UTC -6 hrs).
LOCATION: socialcoop.meet.coop/mat-ivs-4


I am doing a research project on co-ops in Chicago for my capstone and would love to interview you! If you are a cooperative member in Chicago, please reach out to me for more info!



While women in Missouri can no longer get an abortion, our civilized neighbors in Illinois still respect the full human rights of women and their right to choose what happens to their own bodies. Just over the river is the Hope Clinic and they need to be supported.


For our U.S. members who may be struggling with the last few days, don't forget to take some time away from social media and the news to recover. We'll still be here when you get back! And, of course, if you can, help others around you who may also be struggling.

Is there something like Meet dot Coop, but with #Jitsi? I want to keep paying a #cooperative for a video conferencing service but I'm getting tired of #BigBlueButton, it's just too buggy 😪 and today Jitsi saved me when BBB failed
