Solidarity Share Fair: A Really Free Market

December 25, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm

The Share Fair connects people with resources, services, and each other in a convenient and fun way.

The Share Fair provides “no barrier” accessibility to necessary resources to anyone in the community who is in need. “No barrier” means there are no questions asked, no forms to fill out, and no one turned away; just people freely giving what they can and taking what they need.

What you’ll find at the Share Fair:

  • Free food, clothes, and supplies
  • Free services like haircuts, sewing, and massages
  • Helpful local organizations providing information about their services (like HIV Alliance and Women’s Space)
  • Music and a space to relax, talk with people, and just be.

The Share Fair happens the last Tuesday of each month.

Why Share Fair:

Events such as the share fair are necessary because capitalism is failing people. Those who don’t conform to the dominant economic model are discarded by society and the government is unable to provide the sort of care we can provide for each other. One of the principles of anarchism is that members of a community see what needs to be done and take responsibility for doing it themselves. In that spirit, Share Fair is organized by the consensus model; no one leads or follows, instead, all work together toward a common goal. We hope to set the example to others, to show that it’s possible to take action without the government and to cooperate without hierarchy while still being effective (or being more effective).
