Tompkins Time Traders (T3) is a time bank where services and goods are exchanged with time as the only currency. Everyone’s time is valued equally, so an hour of specialized skills (i.e. dentistry, plumbing or carpentry) is equal to an hour of traditionally undervalued labor (i.e. eldercare, childcare or cooking). The orientation is geared toward people who have applied (www.tompkinstimetraders.net/join-us/) or are ready to sign up. Not sure, but interested in learning more? You’re welcome to come too! By being a Tompkins Time Trader you co-create a new economic paradigm that values each person and the skills that EVERYONE has to offer. RSVP to info@tompkinstimetraders.net

When: 2nd Thursday of each month 6-8pm

WAASR is a group of local people committed to raising awareness about and supporting actions to dismantle local structural racism. We facilitate a monthly drop-in in session, on the second Thursday of the month, for white people to learn, think, and plan together. Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive place for any white person to process their experiences of being white, confront any fears or misinformation, think and learn about what it means to be white, confront the nature of white supremacy, and test their thinking about what actions they might take, personally or collectively. We see our work in conjunction with and in support of people taking actions in the community through SURJ, Black Lives Matter and other groups. Sessions will be loosely structured and guided by Talking Circle graduates and facilitators. We will bring snacks to share.
