Resilience Circles:
Building Resilient Communities During Tough Times
With Chuck Collins

Join us for an interactive evening to learn about “Resilience Circles,”
an approach to building economic security through learning, mutual aid, and social action.

Tuesday, January 18, 7 – 8:30 PM
The Festival Center
1640 Columbia Road NW
Washington DC 20009

How do we prepare for economic and ecological change? In response to our insecure times, congregations and communities are forming “Resilience Circles” to build resilience and strengthen community ties.

Resilience Circles are small groups where individuals find connection, the information they need, and avenues to a new kind of security based on mutual aid and support. Sometimes called “Resilience Circles,” ‘Mutual Aid Groups,” or “Economic Security Support Groups,” clubs meet for six initial sessions to learn, support each other, and take action in order to create a new economy that serves everyone in harmony with the planet.  Many clubs continue to meet.

Join us – you’ll find out how to start or join a Resilience Circle in your community.
