––––Mutual Aid Workspace (the MAW)

at the Social Justice Center

Since the early 2000s, the Social Justice Center (SJC) on Williamson Street in Madison has served as a shared-office venue for established and nascent social-justice nonprofit organizations.

The MAW involves further collaboration with communities and groups inside and outside the Center, including a variety of resource-sharing initiatives. Projects currently planned by MAW partners include co-working space, a library of things/ ongoing swap, shared equipment and administrative support for participating organizations and individuals, and a vibrant learning community. Future priorities include establishing an incubator for enterprises capable of generating community-owned wealth while enhancing community quality of life.

Founding organizational members of the MAW include: The Dane County TimeBank, 608 Arts, Common Good Bookkeeping Cooperative, Wisconsin Empathy Guild, and Madison InfoShop.

The MAW will serve as a home base for coordination among projects and networks in Dane County with similar and complementary interest areas.

We are accepting both individual and organizational memberships. Join early and help shape the whole project! Each member has a voice and a vote.
