Start a Pod

We want you to start a pod! A pod is any small group of people who meet regularly for a purpose. That purpose could be anything. Be it mutual aid, education, activism, emotional support, deep community building, learning something, sustainability, environmental repair, or any other purpose we want to help you get started.

We outline a simple spiral of actions to get started.

Envision the pod’s purpose -> invite people -> Set the schedule and norms -> Do your thing -> connect with our community -> reflect and keep it going!

You can learn more in our getting started guide.

If you need support fill let us know with a Start a Pod Form below.


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
