Body paragraph

The cooperative business and community model is both older than you think, and probably not what you think.

Clinton Parker explains how co-ops really work, how they can help some modern problems, and how you can get involved.

Clinton Parker is working to grow the cooperative movement into many more sectors than just grocery stores and housing. Parker is a transplant to Buffalo from Westfield, N.Y. after studying medical anthropology at Buffalo State College. He has lived at the Nickel City Housing Coop for 4-plus years and has sat on the boards of local and national cooperatives. When he's not advocating, he bakes quite a sourdough.
