Resourcing Our Resistance, Nurturing Our Connections: A DC TimeBank Movement Makers Fair
Saturday, May 6th 2017 12:00 PM — 3:30 PM
DC, let’s exchange resources to build resistance! Join the DC TimeBank and local changemakers for a day in the park at the second Movement Makers Fair on Saturday, May 6th from 12-3:30pm.
The Movement Makers Fair will be a place to share and develop skills for resistance, self-determination, inspiration, and healing. Stay tuned for the full schedule of skillshares such as grassroots fundraising, digital security, urban farming, timebanking, and yoga.
We’ve seen that movements are built on people power, reconciliation, and love for one’s community. And we know the DC community is stirring with energy that can be harnessed for building a more equitable home for all of us, neighborhood by neighborhood. Let’s be the communities we want to see across the nation.
Saturday May 6 from 12-3:30pm
Crispus Attucks Park
23 U St NW (Bloomingdale)
