Hi all,

I am involved with a local mobility justice group here in Tucson called FUGA
<https://www.tucsonaz.gov/files/bicycle/documents/TTT_Safe_Streets_FUGA_FD.pdf>
(Familias Unidas Ganando Accesibilidad), which is interested in supporting
a bicycle co-op on Tucson's southside, which is our historically
under-resourced area. BICAS, where I work, is a nonprofit, so I haven't had
a lot of experience on the for profit side. Would any shops out there in
ThinkTanklandia which operate as for profit co-ops be open to chatting with
the FUGistas about your experiences, operations, challenges, etc? Perhaps
even be willing to be part of a group call during which we could do some q
& a with you and other co-op folks? If so, please let me know. Thanks for
considering.

Ride on,
~Carlyn

Buenos días a todxs,

Estoy involucrado con un grupo local que se trata de las movilidades justas
aquí en Tucson llamado FUGA (Familias Unidas Ganando Accesibilidad), que
está interesado en apoyar una cooperativa de bicicletas en el Southside
Tucson, que es nuestra área históricamente con recursos insuficientes.
BICAS, donde trabajo ahora, es una organización sin fines de lucro, por lo
que no he tenido mucha experiencia en el lado con fines lucrativos. ¿Alguna
tienda en ThinkTanklandia que opere como cooperativa con fines de lucro
estaría dispuesta a conversar con las FUGistas sobre sus experiencias,
operaciones, desafíos, etc.? ¿Quizás incluso estar dispuesto a ser parte de
una llamada grupal durante la cual podríamos hacer algunas preguntas y
respuestas con usted y otras cooperativas? Si es así, por favor hágamelo
saber. Gracias por considerar.

Que sigan rodando,
~Carlyn
