With ever more intense and global waves of resistance, movement building spaces like encuentro 5 are as strategically important as ever: we amplify new movements, we "keep hope alive" in quiet periods.
To keep our doors open and to expand our organizing platform, we need your help! The friends "program" is a way to stay connected, share ideas, coordinate our energies and to grow a stable funding base.
By becoming a "friend of e5," you will receive regular reports on our work, be informed about new programs and projects, nominate e5 honorees, suggest activities, and vote for board members. In other words, the friends program organizes our community to be a democratic and participatory one.
You can join the program when you: (1) become a monthly or annual donor (see clickable chart at left); (2) volunteer at encuentro5 or help with organizing our events (including the Peña, our Brown Bag Lunches, and the Vital Conversations series).
