Registrations are closed

Solidarity Summit Sept. 16-17, 1-3pm CDT

We hope you can make it to our next Solidarity Summit! September 16 and 17, 1-3pm CDT each day, on zoom* and anywhere any local group wants to gather (we'll be at the Social Justice Center in Madison WI). Theme is Clusterflocks. Goal is clustering our flocks in ways that can build the potential of each of us, and our networks.

*unless we manage to find a good and more values-aligned web meeting tool that can handle more than a handful of people, we'll use zoom. If you have a good solution instead, let us know! and check our website for details closer to the event...


Saturday September 16, 1-3pm CDT For newcomers, and people who want easy open conversation, this is a Getting to Know You session. We'll give overviews of the HUMANs and the summit, and hear from each of you, and chat more about whatever topics are compelling to you.


Sunday September 17, 1-3pm CDT This second session of the summit will focus in on Communities of Place and Communities of Practice. We'll have 2 facilitated breakout sessions where people can dive into how to realize more dreams through connecting various cooperators  - one session organized by geography, the other by interest area (justice, food, travel, housing). We'll regroup to process what we've learned and how we can operationalize it.
