Universalizing Resistance, Democratizing Power!

Caring Economy leaders Ann Manning, Liane Gale and Kim McKeage will present the workshop:
Caring Economy & Basic Income
Thursday, August 3, 2017 – 1:00pm to 2:15pm Central

The concept of a Basic Income, especially if it were to be issued as a Guaranteed Livable Income, has much potential as an element of a post-patriarchal economic system that values contributions to society by everyone and where poverty is abolished. This workshop seeks to explore how a re-valuing of care-work can solidify the vision of a new economic and societal system, where caring for self, each other, and the planet is the primary focus.

Riane Eisler and Caring Economy leader Sharon Sund will present the workshop:
Social Justice = A Caring Economy
Saturday, August 5, 2017 – 4pm Central

In this workshop, we will explore paths to a thriving economy that supports caring for ourselves, others, and nature. Our post-industrial age requires new economic models, rules, and policies, offering us the opportunity to build a new economics, and society, based on Partnership rather than Domination. We will look at this vital shift, and at how healing from racism and social justice are necessary elements in a caring economy that works for all.

Riane Eisler will be appearing via Skype.

A BIG thank you to Caring Economy leader Sharon Sund, coordinator of the workshops.
