Seattle Metropolitan Credit Union (SMCU) created Co-opalooza to celebrate co-ops and help spread the word of the great things they do for their community. Co-ops from across the economic spectrum will be joining SMCU for a free, all-ages festival with live music, kid’s activities and raffle prizes to help demonstrate the broad spectrum of cooperatives and share the co-op message.
Co-operatives share a commitment to a set of principles that ensure fair business practices, just wages, and social responsibility, among other worthy goals. There are many kinds of cooperatives, including credit unions, pre-schools, farms, and even global news organizations.
