Common Security Clubs: Build Resilient Communities During Tough Times
January 18, 2011 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm
How do we prepare for economic and ecological change? In response to our insecure times, congregations and communities are forming “Common Security Clubs” to build resilience and strengthen community ties.
Common Security Clubs are small groups where individuals find connection, the information they need, and avenues to a new kind of security based on mutual aid and support. Sometimes called “Resilience Circles,” ‘Mutual Aid Groups,” or “Economic Security Support Groups,” clubs meet for six initial sessions to learn, support each other, and take action in order to create a new economy that serves everyone in harmony with the planet. Many clubs continue to meet after those first sessions.
The Institute’s Inequality and the Common Good project and The Faith and Money Network invite you to find out how to start or join a Common Security Club in your community. Then register for January 29th, a day of training on the nuts and bolts of facilitating a Common Security Club.
