At his core, Yahya cares about people and creating a more just, equitable, and awesome world. Using the skills he's gleaned in the shop, in his Community and Justice classes, as a student body president, as a Quaker, and as an IWW member, he is eager to spread his love and knowledge about organizing cooperatively on college campuses. He sees food cooperatives at the intersection of multiple struggles, and as both a process of resistance and creation as well as a product of collective vision.
