What if everyone had the opportunity to build their skills to use their maximum capabilities and apply them to making their communities whole and beautiful?
- People can do the meaningful work they long to do and be compensated for it.
- To design and implement social, legal and economic frameworks that can really support social change agents and their projects.
- Mutual Aid Networks can redesign work and compensation to build a new economy
- To apply these principles to empower organizations such as local Time Banks, Transition Town initiatives,ecology centers,social justice groups, intentional communities and faith based groups to be more relevant and effective.
- To foster a culture of cooperation rather than competition among non-profits
- To resolve and prevent conflicts to minimize infighting, gossip, and division
- To create a pilot Mutual Aid Network in the Bay Area.
About Stephanie Rearick
"I'm an independent musician, co-own a small neighborhood coffeehouse in Madison Wisconsin, and care about social, racial, economic and environmental justice. All of which require a completely different economy in order to thrive.
So I founded Dane County TimeBank in 2004 as an early step toward discovering how a healthy community economic ecosystem might look, and since then have worked with a huge rotating and growing cast of collaborators to create Mutual Aid Networks which has the purpose of redesigning the economy by redesigning work, starting with ourselves and our own networks."
