*The West Coast Communities Conference <http://westcoastcommunities.org> is still open to workshop proposals. More info about the event is below You can read the full call for proposals here <http://groundswell.institute/our-programs/west-coast-communities-conference/call-for-presenters/>.* We are hoping to have a wide range of community movers and shakers to present workshops, dialogues, and demonstrations. Anyone with interest or experience in worker cooperatives, rural communes, artist collectives, or any other kind of communal enterprise is invited to participate. We encourage people to be creative in the matter and manner of these presentations and ask only that they hold some relation to intentional community. *West Coast Communities Conference 2016Thursday September 29th to Sunday October 2nd 2016@ Groundswell Institute <http://groundswell.institute/about-groundswell/>, a queer ecovillage and retreat center* Whether old hat to intentional community or just diving in for the first time, join us at the second annual West Coast Communities Conference to get the boost in skills, connections, and wisdom that will take your engagement to the next level. A blend of workshops and interactive social activities, we will go deep into the topics that matter most to our communities while also making time for joyous connections. The focus for this year’s conference will be on racial and economic justice. These struggles remain present in our lives and more evident than ever – so, we feel it is essential for us to focus on these issues within the communities movement. We have tremendous potential to be leaders in confronting racial and economic disparities, and we also have a long way to go before our own movement reflects the diversity of our country. Continued discussion is key, so we are encouraging all presenters to find ways to bring these subjects into their workshops or activities and for WCCC participants to come with both ideas and open minds. -- *Executive Director - Fellowship for Intentional Community <http://ic.org> *Manager - Twin Oaks Communities Conference <http://communitiesconference.org> *Delegate - Federation of Egalitarian Communities <http://thefec.org/>
