~Saturday, Feb. 15th, 2 events:

     10am: Español/Ingles Conversation Group: This group is open to anyone interested in practicing their Spanish or English conversation skills. The intention is to create a safe and comfortable environment where members of our community can teach and learn from each other. All levels of fluency are welcome. The group is free! The group will be on the first and third Saturdays of the month.

Acompáñanos en SubRosa para conversaciones bilingüe en español y ingles. El grupo es para personas interesadas en practicar su español o inglés en un espacio cómodo, amistoso y respetuoso. La meta del reunión es que participantes enseñen y aprendan uno del otro. Todos niveles son bienvenidos para contribuir. ¡Y es gratis! El grupo será cada primer y tercer sábado del mes.

     noon-3pm:   Really Really Free Market!

Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. We all have something to share with each other... and to receive with gratitude is also a gift.  This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can care for each other.

This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring food to share.  Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box).  Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...).  Come and take what you can use and say thanks!  We will have folks to check in with as you arrive.  First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

SubRosa also offers radical literature for sale, and houses the Anarchist Lending Library. We welcome folks to join us in fostering an environment free from coercion, sexism, queer&homophobia, racism, ableism and other hierarchies.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
