Richmond has a new resource for folks in the City.

The Richmond Rag is “A free calendar of low cost or free events and collective DIY Spaces”.

It includes also a directory of radical spaces and organizations, as well as a list of places to get free or cheap healthy food (Food Not Bombs and local Farmer’s Markets).

Print copies are now available at the Wingnut for September.

You can access online also, and submit your events or organizations here: www.therichmondrag.blogspot.com

So submit your potlucks, protests, free classes, bike rides, meetings etc.!

Thanks to the folks who put this together, you know who you are!!!

We’ve been trying to make a monthly calendar for the Wingnut, but having some technical difficulties. The best option we have available right now is a Google Calendar of Wingnut Events. Different than the rvaradicalendar, our calendar includes both explicitly political and non-political events. Many of the events on the calendar are things that happen at the Wingnut or in our neighborhood. But we are also including other projects that we are involved in, and events that you can be sure to find Wingnuts at.

If you follow this link you should be able to see the calendar. You can also subscribe to particular events to get reminder emails.

Hope to see you at some of these events!

Visit the new RVA Radicalendar site: http://rvaradicalendar.blogspot.com/ !

The RVA Radicalendar attempts to provide a resource for activists, socially conscious community members, and like-minded organizations to be informed about actions, events, and gatherings within our community, and to help build communication and connections between those groups in the spirit of mutual aid.

In addition to having up-to-date event information, ideally we would also like it to provide a resource to connect those who want to help in our community with groups actively seeking extra hands.

The RVA Radicalendar does not promote racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise oppressive events or organizations. We hope that it will prove to be a valuable resource toward all of us working in solidarity!
