E  ENVISION THIS: Resilience Circles, small groups for tough times where people come together to increase their personal security through learning, mutual aid, social action, and community support. This should be a vision listeners can share and act upon immediately in their own neighborhoods.

Our guests will be Sarah Byrnes, Economic Justice Organizer at the Institute for Policy Studies, where she coordinates the Resilience Circle Network and Conrad Willeman who has facilitated the beginning of several Resilience Circles.

The economy is going through a deep transition, and economic security is eroding for millions of people. We’re worried about our financial security and about the future we are creating for our children. Many of us aren’t part of communities where we can talk openly about these challenges and fears.

In response, people are forming small “Resilience Circles” of ten – twenty people. These groups are exploring a new kind of security based in mutual aid and community support, and helping build a new kind of economy that’s fair and in harmony with the earth.

A very informative 5 minute video on Resilience Groups can be viewed at http://localcircles.org.
