Opportunities for celebration, learning, and action

Hello Timebankers! Summer is here and we’ve got some fun and exciting opportunities coming up to get together, build community, celebrate, and learn.

 

Please come celebrate the Summer solstice with us at the Social Justice Center’s SJC Jubilee on Friday, June 21st from 10am - 10pm!

A block party!  Full day of live, local music outside the Social Justice Center, on Few Street between Williamson and E Wilson. As a part of “Make Music Madison” this is a free event that will have something for everyone, with local food carts including Cafe Costa Rica, Haynes Kitchen and Fast n Fresh.

Like the historic jubilees where debt was canceled in a celebratory fashion, we're using this Jubilee to raise money to help pay off the SJC’s recent renovation so we can be ready to invest in really cool forward-looking things, like solar power and rooftop gardens, and supporting projects that make a difference in our community.  The SJC asks for your support so that our member organizations can keep doing the incredible work they do, supported with a beautiful, functional, affordable space!

Sunday Skool is an ongoing opportunity for building our skills, knowledge base, and opportunities for activism. Every Sunday in the Mutual Aid Workspace from 2-4 we host workshops, discussions, and action opportunities in partnership with the Madison Mutual Aid Network Cooperative.

Our June series features the Madison Area Wellness Collective, hosting wellness workshops each week. Come learn ways to take care of yourself so you can more effectively make this world a better place.

Starting July 7th, we’ll begin our Transformational Leadership Series, hosted by Davette Baker. In this series we’ll explore power, privilege, structures and history of oppression, and ways to make change in our community and in systems. For anyone interested in supporting the TimeBank’s Restorative Justice work, this series will help with gaining understanding of why we do this work, the historical harms we need to address, and give you the background knowledge and grounding necessary to truly understand why we do this work and what we’re fighting for.

Please join us in our fight towards mutual respect for all. We hope to see you at the Jubilee and at Sunday Skool. 

In solidarity,

The TimeBank Team
