The Broken Spoke bike coop in Oxford is fundraising to move to a new home - send some solidarity their way if you can spare anything!
They do DIY workshops, mechanics courses, cycle training, events for underrepresented groups, and lots more great stuff.

Schedule poll live in the Community Working Group Loomio for the call to integrate the latest round of feedback on the Code of Conduct, with the output being the draft that will be submitted to the full #socialcoop membership for ratification.
If you're a member and want to have a say in the document that governs how we expect each other to behave in this shared space, please consider attending the call and/or contribute commentary to the Doc.
The coop should enable donating to translators.
There's interesting stuff in YouTube without English subtitles. I could give 5-15 $ for crowdfunding English subtitles to many documentaries.

I could do subtitles to Finnish public media documentaries for free.
Encouraging and enabling contribution to commons.
