    Something I wanted to share here – some consumer/survivor activists, including Sarah Knutson who just wrote an article here on the anti-Murphy Bill campaign, are holding space for a / Virtual Pub / Virtual Drop-In / basically every evening now – and they are looking for more people to co-host/help hold the space. You can either join by phone or by internet.

    Some of them are about specific “themes” but it’s all pretty flexible, all part of a human rights-oriented project, I called in for a while on Saturday, and five of us shared some poetry, wondered whether peer-respite activists had ever enlisted the support of insurance companies because of the lower costs, talked about various life stuff. My thought is, this is good both as a way to reach out if you’re doing any organizing in your community – and to hear from allies if you’re having a hard time, certainly it’s better and safer than calling a crisis hotline! And maybe if people here get something out of the conversation, they could volunteer to host for a couple hours a week.

    I’m jealous; living on the west coast puts all that beyond my bedtime.

    Fantastic idea, tho.


    Yeah, great idea. Thanks for the info!
