Community Councils Working Group Meeting
August 19 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Workers councils, soviets, mirs, communes, caracoles, collectives, asambleas populares—all key bodies of working-class autonomy and self-government from past to present.
They are as relevant as ever, but still vastly misunderstood and underdeveloped. Why must we build them today? How should they relate? How can they be part of new, comprehensible institutions? And controlled by the grassroots?
Community Councils Working Group is a catalytic space to facilitate discussion and development of such self-governing institutions as necessary platforms for collective democratic empowerment. Our approach involves coalition building within our own communities while using group meetings to share best practices and improve our local organizing strategies.
