SF Bay Area Community Exchange
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Cafe La Boheme
Street: 3318 24th Street (near 24th BART)
This is the first meeting of a group of enthusiastic people who are interested in starting a local currency and/or bartering network in order to facilitate a more just and sustainable local economy. If you are interested, subscribe to sfbacommunityexchange-subscribe [at] yahoogroups.com.
Reasons for developing a local means of exchange:
-the collapsing economy and the associated rise of poverty
-better pay equity and fuller employment
-development of stronger community relations
-more environmentally sound production of goods and reduced energy use for distribution
-less money going to the government's wars
-supports local workers and withdraws support for exploitation of workers abroad
-to enjoy life more, less time working at a desk job and more time gardening, taking care of family, etc.
-greater self and community sufficiency as peak oil becomes a challenge...
