The Federation Of Southern Cooperatives

The South

The Federation Of Southern Cooperatives is a non-profit cooperative association of black farmers, landowners, and cooperatives. Their goals are: 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 a unique and effective Rural Training and Research Center to provide information, skills, and awareness, in a cultural context, to help our members and constituents to build strong rural communities; and to develop, advocate and support public policies to benefit our membership of Black and other family farmers and the low-income rural communities where they live.
