We would like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the P.O.P. Coop!
The People’s Organized Power (POP) Coop was a wonderful first time success! We hope
that all who participated found Sunday an engaging way to deepen their knowledge about
Venezuela and learn about some of the incredible work that is happening here in our
Olympia community! We encourage everyone to stay in touch, offer feedback, and help
us brainstorm possibilities for next year.
If you are interested in seeing this event happen again next year or would like to
participate for a first time, please let us know so we can start getting an idea about the
discussions that need to happen to make this day an even more integrated and cross-
cultural community event.
If you did not get a chance to fill out an evaluation form, please email one of us about
what you thought of the events on either Saturday night or Sunday. This is a learning
process for us and we would really appreciate feedback! Thanks

We would like to give big THANK YOUs to everyone who helped make the P.O.P.
Coop possible. We could not have made happen without your involvement, participation,
support, and physical help. This was truly a cooperative and collective effort.

People’s Organized Power. An event hosted by the Evergreen class, Venezuela: Building Economic and Social Justice. This fair is dedicated to reorganizing our needs and establishing a cohesive community consciousness in solidarity with multi-cultural and generational movements.
We would like to invite you to participate in a day event that will celebrate our local and international communities. This will be an opportunity for participants to showcase their community projects, movements and ideas. The Evergreen program Venezuela: Building Economic and Social Justice will be hosting this event and providing some of the workshops and presentations based on themes of popular education, reclaiming community space, art as a form or resistance, and protagonism.
