We shouldn’t have to face harsh economic realities all alone.   Increasingly people are coming together in small groups known by various names: common security clubs, mutual aid groups, resilience circles, and unemployed support groups.   Such groups are forming in Seattle to:

  • Learn about the real causes of our economic problems and budget deficits
  • Provide mutual support by helping ourselves and our neighbors to survive hard times
  • Work for social and tax policies to benefit the majority of Washingtonians and Americans


  • Effective organizing tools for community, labor & religious leaders
  • Strengthening personal and community resilience
  • Deepening the engagement of constituencies within our respective movements
