Co-operative Group Emphasises LGBT Activism


The Co-operative Bank, recovering from its financial woes of several years ago, is launching a major marketing campaign across several media platforms, to encourage people who care about the world, ethical trading and justice, to consider investing with them. You may have seen some of its television commercials already, running across many networks, which emphasise how people who care for the environment, disabilities and human rights, can use the Co-op Bank safe in the knowledge that its investments have a positive effect on the world. One of these commercials places trans rights central stage and reveals how LGBT youth groups can benefit from grants made by the Co-operative Movement. Even if you are not able to invest with the Co-op Bank, then you can still support the Co-operative Movement in the UK by shopping at your local Co-operative Store. These stores are found on high streets and shopping centres across the country and sell a wide variety of food and groceries. When you are shopping with them, you are also taking a stance in favour of LGBT rights and human rights generally, as well as investing in your local community. Co-operative stores were one of the first to go cruelty free and vegan in cosmetics and the first to render all their coffee and chocolate to fairtrade certification. You can even enjoy good music whilst shopping in a Co-op store because their in house radio channel is award winning with an emphasis on different and diverse music as well as giving weather reports and regular headlines.
