Community is the heart and soul of our co-op

Cooperative Principle #7: Concern For Community

Community is the heart and soul of Outpost. That is why systemic racism and the ongoing violence towards our Black neighbors and friends starkly reminds us all that we have a lot more work to do collectively as a community, individually as citizens, and as a community-owned business. We accept that there is much to learn in the ongoing conversation around racial justice and as a co-op we will continue on that path of positive change.

Outpost is a place for the community to gather. Whether it’s to shop for food, gain employment, or deliver goods and services, our responsibility is to ensure our stores are places where all people feel welcome, safe and respected. We decry the racial violence and discrimination that hammers down true liberty and equality for us all. We are committed to honest discussions about systemic racism and to listen carefully to those who are impacted.

Outpost will continue to join hands with others in our community who share our vision of diversity, inclusiveness, racial equity and justice. Now is the time - not two weeks from now, or a year from now – it’s now.

Cooperative Values

Cooperatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.
