The Community Assemblies on Mutual Aid & Tech, hosted by the PCC Solidarity Collaboratory, offers a space for exploring the intersection of technology and mutual aid. Through workshops and discussions, participants will learn how to use technology to support mutual aid initiatives, including tools and platforms for organizing and coordinating efforts, facilitating communication and collaboration, and managing data. Join us for these engaging and informative sessions on the role of technology in promoting mutual aid in our communities.

This is an assembly for mutual learning and building things together and for convening thinkers and doers.

Sharing Digital Infrastructure
A community forum focused on sharing digital infrastructure can be incredibly beneficial for platform co-op founders. Building software from scratch is often a huge trap that can consume a lot of time and resources. By coordinating and replicating existing digital infrastructure, platform co-op founders can avoid this trap and focus on other aspects of their business. Sharing digital infrastructure can also help to reduce costs and increase efficiency for everyone involved. Overall, a community forum on sharing digital infrastructure can be a valuable resource for platform co-op founders.
