Join us for a screening of Fixing the Future, a David Brancaccio (NPR, PBS) production about local groups across the country who are working to create a sustainable future. The BNote and BGCA are featured!

We are honored to announce that Edgar S. Cahn, the “father” of time banking, the creator of Time Dollars, founder of TimeBanks USA, and author of several books including “No More Throw Away People: The Co-Production Imperative” will be joining us and will be on hand for our discussion after the film. Mr. Cahn’s Time Dollars is just one achievement in a career that, since the early 1960’s, has been dedicated to achieving social justice for the disenfranchised. Check out a short clip of Mr. Cahn speaking briefly about money for another upcoming film about the need for creating a new people-centered economy: “Money & Life.”
