Help build Mutual Aid Networks for Madison and the world
Hello TimeBank members,
Many of you know me as the Founder and former Co-Director of the Dane County TimeBank. During that time I was working on a Research and Development project which has now turned into Mutual Aid Networks - or MANs - a way to redesign work through connecting timebanking, commons building, common money stewardship, and cooperative ownership.
We're making a Mutual Aid Network here in Madison, and we expect it to make your timebanking experience better and more valuable in addition to connecting you with additional kinds of resources, and amazing people from around the world.
We're also connecting many MAN pilot sites from around the world in our own network of mutual aid, a global cooperative incorporated here in Wisconsin. We're calling that Humans United in Mutual Aid Networks (HUMANs)*.
I'm writing to invite you to be involved in 2 different ways:
Exciting stuff! I hope you can participate.
Thanks for your participation! We've learned a lot from our experience together and hope to apply that now to making it work more effectively for everyone.
* We recently changed the name of the Main MAN to HUMANs.
