This has been a very painful week across the country. On top of a global pandemic which has now killed over 100,000 people in the US and the resulting economic collapse, both disproportionately impacting communities of color, we witness the on-going racial violence that has plagued this land for four centuries. Sharing in the immense grief and rage, we channel the cooperative values, including equality, equity and solidarity, as we honor the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Aubrey Ahmad, David McAtee and so many others. Guided by our mission, CFNE recommits ourselves to racial justice. Black Lives Matter.
