Hey :) This is an account for karrot - an open source community organising platform focused on resource saving and sharing.

We're currently being used by a bunch of groups around Europe who save and share food from being wasted (see karrot.world/#/groupPreview), but heading towards general community organising uses too.

We're into stuff like participatory design, democratic process, non/less-hierarchical structure.

We're open source (you can use our main instance, or self-host).

Fascinating article on the concept of kegare 穢れ - impurity, contamination, etc. - which is central in the discrimination against women, foreigners, and so-called buraku people. I learned about this first from my friends in the buraku liberation movement, including workers at the Tokyo slaughterhouse.

Of course Herman Benson wrote his own obituary:
"Herman Benson waged a long, courageous, effective campaign against Old Age…. He seemed on the verge of success; but at the age of 104, just before the final battle, he died..."

The video focuses on legal interventions and accomplishments, but AUD also played a crucial role in facilitating bottom-up organizing in countless union locals in every industry.

My former mentor and friend at the Association for Union Democracy, Herman Benson, has died a week before his 105th birthday. An amazing man. Brecht said people who struggle for freedom for a month are good, for a decade are great, but those who struggle all their lives are indispensable. When I met him in 1992 he was already beyond indispensable. He was a real mensch; that is a heart beat that will be missed.

The CW feature on Mastodon is a good example. Newsletter pop ups would be a bad example.

My name is Joe and I am incredibly excited to find this community. I‘ve been involved with Co-ops for most of my life, as a member of the Potsdam, NY Co-op, South Royalton Co-op, and the Hanover Consumer Cooperative Society. I served as the President of the Potsdam Co-op, where I helped hire a new GM and worked to transition our bylaws to a solidarity model. Looking forward to connecting with people about Co-ops, Vermont, and the role cooperatives can play in digital communities!

The team is looking for help beta testing:

"For the moment, contributing to the testing of this beta 3 will require strong technical knowledge. ..we mainly need people to install Mibolizon on different systems, and give us feedback on the documentation." docs.joinmobilizon.org/

"However, without too much technical knowledge, you can try to create an account and dummy events, to see if it federates correctly between different instances."
