Community Councils Lake Social

June 15, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

Community Councils Working Group is holding space at The Point for those who can’t make it to our Monday meetings.

Bring friends and snacks or drinks!

This location is ADA compliant but does not have gender neutral bathrooms available.

Reach us at ChicagoCCWG@gmail.com or (872) 760-4616 (text or call) for ANY questions.

Workers councils, soviets, mirs, communes, caracoles, collectives, asambleas populares—key bodies of working-class autonomy and self-management throughout history up to the present. 

They are as relevant as today as they have ever been. But how shall we build them? How should they relate? Where should power reside, and shall we distribute it?

Community Councils Working Group is a catalytic space to facilitate discussion and development of such self-governing institutions as a platform for collective democratic empowerment. Our approach involves coalition building within our own communities while using group meetings to share best practices and improve our local organizing strategies.
