My home co-op Union Cab made this statement in support of Movement for Black Lives. It took them a bit longer because it was a membership discussion, but it is a powerful statement. Also, while the co-op membership has historically been over 90% white, it currently has a Black man serving as President and another Black man serving as Business Mgr (the highest ranking management position).I was the last General Mgr and first Business Mgr. rb.gy/zxgwoz

This is also significant becuase UCC has a long standing policy of only supporting co-ops and labor mvoements, but I believe that they correctly correlate racism with capitalism, so supporting BLM is a labor issue.
