About


English

Dual Power 2022 is an autonomous event being organized by a loose collective of tenants, workers and activists participating in Symbiosis Federation, Autonomous Tenants Union Network, Industrial Workers of the World and independent dual power projects across the country organizing to build independent working class power throughout North America.

Recent events—the pandemic, escalating militarism, the surge of fascist and racist activity, the attacks on trans and non-binary members of our communities, to name just a few—have shown us that our movements and lives, while interconnected and growing, are largely alienated from one another. COVID has only made this worse. Achieving our goals requires action, pollination, and community. Connecting and exchanging our ideas and skills and building resilient networks are key parts of building our collective power.

At Dual Power 2022 we want to foster an atmosphere of generative co-learning, co-creativity and shared strategizing. We want to connect people and bring them together around shared work. We are organizing to create a space where ideas are exchanged, stories are told, and futures are imagined, in the context of building and fighting for dual power.

DUAL POWER 2022 needs the support of fellow workers, tenants, activists and organizers across North America to help pay for travel and logistics for participants to attend our event in Chicago on July 29, 30, 31 at the Indiana Dunes. Your support will contribute to the success of our shared vision!

Go to dualpower2022.org for more information and to register for the event.

Ayúdenos a construir organizaciones de poder dual por apoyar a DUAL POWER 2022
 

Dual Power 2022 es un evento autónomo siendo organizado por un colectivo suelto de inquilinos, trabajadores y activistas participando en la Federación Symbiosis, la Red de Sindicatos de Incilinxs Autónomos, Trabajadores Industriales del Mundo (IWW) y proyectos de poder dual independientes a través del país organizando para construir poder de la clase trabajadora independiente en todo Norteamérica. 

Eventos recientes—la pandemia, el militarismo escalando, el aumento de actividad fascista y racista, el ataque a miembros trans y no binarios de nuestras comunidades, por nombrar algunos—nos han muestro que nuestros movimientos y vidas, aunque interconectados y creciendo, se son en gran parte alienados. COVID ha solamente hecho esto peor. Lograr nuestros metas requiere acción, polinización y comunidad. Conectar e intercambiar nuestras ideas y habilidades y construir redes resilientes son partes claves de construir nuestro poder colectivo. 

En Dual Power 2022, queremos fomentar una atmósfera de aprendizaje y creatividad generativos y cooperativos y de estrategias compartidas. Queremos conectar a gente y unirla alrededor de trabajo compartido. Estamos organizando para crear un espacio donde ideas son intercambiadas, historias son contadas y futuros son imaginados en el contexto de construir y luchar por el poder dual. 

DUAL POWER 2022 necesita el apoyo de compañeros de trabajo, inquilinos, activistas y organizadores a través de Norteamérica para ayudar a pagar el viaje y logística para que participantes asistan nuestro evento en Chicago el 29, 30 y 31 de julio en las Indiana Dunes. ¡Su apoyo contribuirá al éxito de nuestra visión compartida!

Aidez-nous à construire les organisations de double puissance par appuyer DUAL POWER 2022

Dual Power 2022 est un évent autonome qui est organisé par un collectif ample de locataires, travailleurs et activistes participant à la Fédération Symbiosis, au Réseau de Syndicats de Locataires Autonomes, aux Travailleurs Industriels du Monde (IWW) et aux projets de double puissance indépendants à travers le pays qui organisent pour construire la puissance de la classe ouvrière indépendante partout l'Amérique du Nord.

Les évents récents—la pandémie, le militarisme escalant, l'augmentation d'activité fasciste et raciste, l'attaque aux membres trans et non-binaires de nos communautés, pour n'en nommer que quelques-uns—nous ont montré que nos mouvements et vies, bien que interconnectés et en croissance, se sont aliénés de grand part. La COVID seulement a fait ça pire. Atteindre nos objectifs nécessite l'action, la pollinisation et la communauté. Brancher et échanger nos idées et habilités et construire les réseaux résilients sont des éléments clés pour construire notre puissance collective.

À Dual Power 2022, on veut fomenter une atmosphère de l'apprentissage et de la créativité génératifs et coopératifs et des stratégies partagées. Nous voulons connecter les gens et les unir autour du travail partagé. Nous organisons pour créer un espace où les idées sont échangées, les histoires sont racontées et les futurs sont imaginés, dans le contexte de construire et lutter pour la double puissance.

DUAL POWER 2022 a besoin du soutien des compagnons de travail, des locataires, des activistes et des organisations à travers l'Amérique du Nord pour aider à payer le voyage et la logistique pour que les participants assistent à notre évent à Chicago le 29, 30 et 31 juillet aux Indiana Dunes. Votre support contribuera au succès de notre vision partagée !


Expense Policy


Expenses will be covered for costs which support and progress the Dual Power 2022 event, for example and non-exhaustively:
  • Training and education in new facilitation techniques;
  • Costs associated with camping and food during the event itself;
  • Cost of producing print and digital materials associated with the event;
  • Translation services before and during the event;
  • Software, Hosting and SaaS/PaaS etc. charges related to the project.

Expenses should be discussed via email ([email protected]) or on the discord, and nominally approved, and normally prior to any purchases being made, before being submitted to the Collective.

You must upload a valid receipt or invoice clearly showing the total amount, date, legal address, and what the payment is for.

Current budget

  • $3,000 for the space 
    • camping ($1,500), 
    • shelters ($500), 
    • and park fees (we'll have to pay these as folks show up with cars)
  •  $3,000 for food & supplies
  •  $3,000 accessibility (transport, translation, formats, material). We’re hoping to cover most of this through volunteering, but having money to pay people for their often under-valued labor is nice.
  • Any money raised over this will go towards a general travel, camping, and solidarity fund. We’re hoping to raise money to support 200 people attending.
