Hello and Happy Thanksgiving Indivisibles!
I’ve been contemplating a new project for many months now and am finally ready to put my ideas into action. I’m launching The Letter Cooperative (TLC) in the new year!
Itching to do something? Want to start now? Beta TLC meeting will start in December! You can participate in person if you are vaccinated and well, or virtually via zoom.
Wednesday December 8 6pm-8pm
Wednesday December 22 6pm-8pm;
Rachel’s House: 527 Alder St; Sandpoint
You can also puck up a packet from my porch anytime after the meeting and participate quietly at home on your own schedule.
Rachel Castor is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Meeting ID: 751 553 4498
This project will focus on the activism of letter and postcard writing. I find it very lonely and dissatisfying work to contact our current Members of Congress (MOC’s). And I especially dread making those phone calls! I was inspired by an organization I used to belong to but which no longer exists (I don’t even remember the name!). The organization would mail me a packet of letters each month, typed with my return address and my MOC’s addresses. All I had to do was sign them and post them! I found this a satisfying activity that made me feel I was a part of the movement. I also kept up to date with politics by writing these letters.
I envision something similar not with more community participation. My goalie that each member will write and bring a letter each week about a topic of their choosing! Then we can all benefit from each other’s knowledge while also sharing the labor.
Don’t let this idea of a cooperative deter you from participating of you don’t have the time or inclination to write your own letters! Come to the beta december meetings and we can brainstorm the best ways to make this idea a reality. I will bring letters! You can bring a pen (and some wine or chocolate)!
Do you like this idea?
