Innofaith recently wrote an article that featured CPA Co-op as an example of how cooperatives can change local economies. Late last year Fast Company also wrote extensively about CPA, quoting co-op advocate Nathan Schneider:
“To Schneider, CPA is one of those powerful co-ops that operates mainly in the background of society. It’s not ‘disrupting’ anything around it, but rather solidifying bonds across a community that the mainstream economy often fails. That, to Schneider, is the true power of cooperative models.”
