Many have asked if there is a way to participate in BACE monthly, face-to-face, outside of our planning meetings. In the do-ocratic spirit of grassroots economics, letâ€™s get it going!
Inspired by Arroyo S.E.C.O. Network of Time Banks, and also by successes with our own â€œPOSSE Parties,â€ we thought that monthly potlucks, rotating through Bay Area neighborhoods, would be something to get off the ground. So now all we need are some people who would like to help make this happen. Do you want to be involved with the more â€œnon-technicalâ€ aspects of BACE organizing? Is there a community space in your area that you think would be good—a library, center, office, park, or maybe even a home? Do you want to be part of the strengthening of BACE?
When we interact face-to-face as groups it really shapes what this project is supposed to be all about. Experience has shown that itâ€™s essential to share space with each other in order to really build trust, and to build a movement that challenges capitalist values.
So letâ€™s get it started! Eating, drinking, listening to music, offering skillshares, and sharing ideas on how to use the time bank and how to make it better…. Sounds fun already! If youâ€™re interested, call Amber at 415 699 7011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
