Strike Debt Bay Area

As individuals, families, and communities, most of us are drowning in debt. Debt keeps us isolated, ashamed, and afraid. We are not a loan. Join us as we imagine and create a new world based on the common good, not Wall Street profits. Subscribe to our mailing lists and stay up to date on the latest news.

“Just as bosses are dependent on workers, so are lenders dependent on borrowers. If workers walk out, the enterprise stops. If borrowers refuse to pay their debts, the lenders could be in real trouble. Each side depends on the other. The millions of underwater mortgage holders, of student debtors and credit card holders, need the bank loans – but so do the banks need those borrowers, and they especially need them to cooperate by paying their monthly charges. Otherwise, the capital that the banks list on their books begins to drain away.” ~Francis Fox Piven

Why:      Learn how to participate in a growing debt resistance movement

Berkeley, CA – Debt keeps us isolated, ashamed, and afraid – of becoming homeless, of going hungry, of being crippled or killed by treatable illness, or of being trapped in poverty-level jobs. Those facing foreclosure, medical debt, student debt, or credit card debt feel alone, hounded by debt collectors, and forced into unrewarding work to keep up with payments.

Join us for Strike Debt Bay Area’s third Debtors’ Assembly, where we will come together to understand debt in this modern society of ours and how to fight it collectively. This event is sponsored by the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists.

This Debtors’ Assembly will be an opportunity for people to come together, gain an understanding of how debt works, share their own debt experiences, and work on various ways to change the unjust debt system and begin to organize debt resistance.

ORGANIZATION INFO: Strike Debt Bay Area is the local chapter of Strike Debt, an international movement of groups working to build popular resistance to all forms of unjust debt. Strike Debt has organized the Rolling Jubilee, the Debt Resistors Operations Manual, and local debtors’ assemblies.

Strike Debt supports the creation of just and sustainable economies, based on mutual aid, common goods, and public affluence. We owe the financial institutions nothing. It is to our friends, families and community that we owe everything.

You Are Not Alone. You Are Not A Loan!
