“There are a lot of organizations doing political organizing, but I think we’re working on something different here in terms of talking about it as a community. It really struck home for me when we had the Shabbat dinner for gay and lesbian marriage.”
Economic Justice and Mutual Aid
When the economic crisis hit in 2008, young adults gathered for a series of living room conversations. We talked about how the economic crisis was affecting us, and we talked about how we want to respond to it as a community. Since then, we have worked to build the Workmen's Circle as a radical mutual aid society for today with activities like skillshares and meal swaps that can help us to live more affordable, sustainable and communal lives.
More recently, the rallying cry of the Occupy movement has inspired us to reflect on what it means to be part of the 99%. As we consider what we want to create in 2012, we are once again calling for a series of house meetings across Boston, so we can tell our stories and draft a plan for meaningful collective action.
House meeting dates are currently being scheduled. If you are interested in hosting or participating, contact the office at email@example.com.
