Papertree August 12th Update
Published on August 12, 2022 by Rudy Fraser

Hello Community 🌱,

I hope you're well 💖. This week's update is brief! I just wanted to make you all aware of some recent community connections, launches, and publications from the past week. As always, centered in #gratitude:

Coalition Building 🤝🏾

  • @Hank Teran introduced me to the folks behind East BK Mutual Aid. I look forward to connecting with them more in the coming weeks
  • @Cari Levison introduced me to the founder of GatherFor and there's a lot of alignment between what they're doing and where Papertree is heading. Within 24 hours of Cari introducing us we're already planning a collaborative pilot program!!!! 🔥🔥🔥 
    I'm very excited for this as it has the potential to be an evolutionary step for advancing Papertree.
  • I'll be traveling upstate next weekend for a coalition building event at Star Route Farms, repping on behalf of BAM. It'll be a great opportunity for me to get further exposure to the food sovereignty side of this work.

Launches 🚀

As you may have seen, I took over this week's ReFi Roundup on the ReFi DAO Blog. You can read the full article here.

Papertree now accepts crypto as a form of contribution and can also reimburse in crypto. Same rules apply and you can read more about the release on this Twitter thread.

Events ✨

Our ✨phenomenal✨ friends over at PactDAO are hosting an event in Bushwick called "We Feed Each Other: Building Food Security in NYC". I'll be on the speakers panel and our very own @Ericka Mabrie will be moderating.

I would love to see some faces from the Papertree community in attendance! You can RSVP here if you're interested.

Speaking of PactDAO, I would like to give them a BIG SHOUTOUT!!! They made a substantial crypto contribution to recently and are big supporters of the project. Thanks a ton for being a part of our community 💞

That's all for this week! Thank you all and I hope to see you IRL soon!
