On July 15, 2010, the Olympia Food Co-op became the first grocery store in the United States to boycott Israeli products. The board of directors made the consensus decision with encouragement from member activists. The Co-op has 15,000 members and operates two stores in Olympia, WA—the hometown of Rachel Corrie.
Challenging Power is a series of reflections on the decision to boycott, its significance, and the role it plays in the process of social change.
