On August 16-18, 2012, the Federation of Southern Cooperatives will celebrate 45 years of service to rural communities and making a difference for humankind.

In the four decades since the founding of the Federation of Southern Cooperatives, there has been significant work, participation and development of low-income people and their communities.

There are three major themes of the Federation’s mission, work and accomplishments over the past forty years:

• to develop cooperatives and credit unions as a means for people to enhance the quality of their lives and improve their communities;

• to save, protect and expand the landholdings of Black family farmers in the South;

• to develop, advocate and support public policies to benefit our membership of Black and other family farmers and low income rural communities.

Throughout its history, the Federation has woven these themes together to create a strong community based movement of organizations seeped in struggle, tested by time, experienced in fighting exploitation and knowledgeable of the tactics, tools and techniques needed to help people build their own property and progress.
