Dorchester Resilience Circle
Monday, April 25 at 7 PM
First Parish Church in Dorchester
10 Parish Street
Meeting House Hill

Facilitated by Chuck Collins and Andrea Nagel.  Open to the entire community, not just UUs!

The Great Recession has reminded us of our vulnerabilities.  Debt.  Foreclosure.  Unemployment and Anxious Employment.  Evaporating Savings.  Rising Costs.  In response, communities are forming “Resilience Circles” to build resilience and strengthen community ties.

Resilience Circles are small groups where individuals find connection, information, and avenues to a new kind of security – one 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.
