Solidarity Collective Creates Charter

by Matt on December 27, 2021

Over the past month, members of Solidarity Collective (there are 16 of us here now) have finalized a charter that outlines our shared beliefs and values, and the purpose of the collective and its resources. We are currently revising our membership process and conduct expectations. It’s hard, careful, slow, consensus-based work, made necessary by the unprecedented growth in numbers and activity we’ve experienced over the past six months. We continue to receive new inquiries every month and want to continue to grow as we can create the systems and spaces and accommodations to do it. The charter will help us help our visitors and applicants know what we’re about–and it will help us too, in our moments of inevitable confusion, overwhelm, and internal debate.

You can read the entire charter here.

You may find it interesting, as we did, that the charter is both considerably “doctrinaire” and also explicitly pluralist. We remain committed to being a big anti-capitalist tent, but we are definitely not for everyone.

Our podcasts contain discussions of the everyday procedures, tactical and philosophical discussions, analysis of local, national and global politics, and stuff we find entertaining and thought-provoking. You can hear them at our Patreon platform or on this Podbean platform (which also sources them onto Spotify, Apple, and more).

  1. Matt, I’ve been trying to get hold of you to see if you would like a grandfather clock for your main building. It would certainly go with your Victorian building. I currently have three of these and don’t need or want that many. Please contact me in the near future to let me know one way or the other. I’ve stopped by, but no one answers the door, and I don’t have either your phone number or e-mail address. Scott
