Tune in to WOL 1450 AM, 95.9 FM and WOL Livestream on May 9 at 10:30 am EDT for Everything Co-op, hosted by Vernon Oakes. This week, Vernon will interview Taryn Tymus and Andrea Tucker, who respectively hold the positions of President and Vice President at the Champlain Court Cooperative (CCC) in Washington, DC. During this discussion, they will delve into the cooperative’s role within their community and share insights from their personal cooperative journeys.

Taryn Tymus is a retired hairstylist and art-based community activist who serves as the President of Champlain Court Cooperative. Her journey in community activism began over 15 years ago in Ward 7. Taryn is enthusiastic about sharing the knowledge she has gained from her Adams Morgan neighbors in the District of Columbia, all while striving to improve her leadership skills within the cooperative.

Andrea Tucker is a pivotal member of the Champlain Court Cooperative. Following a rewarding career in nonprofit management, Andrea now serves as both a co-op owner and the Vice President of the CCC Board. Her home, shared with her daughter Maulani, is a haven of warmth, creativity, and support. Andi’s decision to retire early allowed her to homeschool Maulani, nurturing her interests in drama, voice acting, and visual arts. Committed to service, Andrea looks forward to contributing to the expansion of CCC’s portfolio, utilizing her skills and experience to enhance the community she cherishes.
