Establish a Campus Co-op Affiliate Group 


FIRSTHAND was born as a student group on the West Virginia University campus and we continue to partner with organizations that work to promote and support food sovereignty, youth activism and cooperative economies  

 FIRSTHAND Co-op Affiliates contribute to the educational and cooperative development mission of our organization. By coordinating activities, events, and fundraisers on their campuses, Co-op Affiliates contribute to the growth of fair trade, promote sustainable development, practice economic solidarity, and exercise their democratic decision making power by  choosing which organizations they wish to  contribute to.
