VAWC’s vision relies on all co-operatives working together, participating in the spirit of the 6th Co-operative Principle – Co-operation Among Co-operatives – to build a co-operative economy for all. We rely on our local, regional and national co-operative organizations to inform our role in larger contexts in and across co-op sectors.
