We are a grassroots action group working to build a sustainable and resilient Albuquerque. We are kicking the fossil fuel habit as individuals, neighborhoods, and as a city. We are relocalizing our food, education, products, and jobs, which lowers the cost of living and improves our health and community spirit. Together, we are capable of coping with the economic and ecological crises that are already happening as we become interdependent yet self-reliant.
Join us for our monthly gatherings where we network, discuss sustainability and resilience in Albuquerque, get updates from our work groups, share food, scheme ideas, do activities, and learn something new.
Our next gathering is Wednesday, March 1st at 6:30pm at First Unitarian Church (Carlisle & Comanche, map here)
Self Care for Activists: Balancing Political Outrage and Inner Peace
How does one participate in civic life, while sustaining one’s own life?
Phone calls and letters to elected officials, petitions, rallies, hearings, and town halls… we can’t do it all, but we do what we can. Let’s get together for a quiet meal then discuss the different ways we’re coping, managing our time, balancing our outrage with inner peace, our activism with our sanity, avoiding burnout, and cultivating personal resilience.
Join us for a potluck at 6:30pm and community discussion starting at 7pm. We’ll have a few structured exercises to spur contemplation, evaluation, and sharing of interventions, but this will be a relaxed gathering, a time to blow off steam about the crazy world we’re living in.
What to bring:
- A dish to share for the potluck*
- A few dollars to contribute to the space*
- Your thoughts & ideas. How are you handling the new political climate?
*No one will be turned away. Please come even if you cannot contribute.
Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook event. We hope to see you there!
