17Oct Mutual Aid Networks


Because there’s an infinite amount of good work to do
and a limited number of good jobs

Friday, October 17, 6pm UTC

We interviewed Stephanie Rearick about the story of the Mutual Aid Network (MAN), a new type of cooperative.

MAN pools and stewards value and rewards good work with cooperative economic tools,

such as timebanking, business-to-business mutual credit, and cooperative saving, lending, and investment models.

Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Stephanie Rearick is founder and Co-Director of the Dane County Time Bank (DCTB) - a 2500+-member timebank in Madison, Wisconsin, devoted to building a just and inclusive economy - and Project Coordinator of Time For the World, the research and development arm of DCTB.

In addition to her work in timebanking and promoting grassroots-up economic and community regeneration, Rearick is co-owner of Mother Fool's Coffeehouse.

Rearick worked for Greenpeace for six years of young adulthood, helped launch Madison Hours local currency in 1995 and served for several years on the steering committee of independent local political party Progressive Dane. Rearick also works as a musician.
