Get Involved with Repair!

 

 

In addition to repairing your own things and helping friends and family with their broken stuff, please consider engaging with the community to promote repair.

We facilitate involvement in three areas:

  1. Community Repair Events

  2. Repair in the Schools

  3. Advocacy

Details on each follow below.

 

 

1. Two Community Repair Event formats:

Fixit Clinics at Berkeley Public Library and beyond
Transition Berkeley Repair Café - in Berkeley, serving The East Bay

Basics on Volunteering for Community Repair EventS:

Fixers

If you're handy with repairs and like to share what you know, come volunteer — all skills are highly valued — clothing, mechanics, electronics, furniture, appliances, lamps, bikes, toys, etc. etc. ... pretty much anything that can break and be brought through the door.

Organizing

Planning, publicity, coordinating — there's all kinds of possibility on the organizing front.

HOSPITALITY & LOGISTICS

Fixit Clinics and Repair Cafés need help with registration, the café, and managing the flow of volunteers, people and repair projects.

 

 

2. Volunteer in the Schools:

Teachers are developing programs that need skilled volunteers.
For information on current projects: Schools

 
 
 

 

3. Advocacy:


Citizen involvement is essential to advancing responsible Repair policy and legislation.

→ ALERT: Right to Repair legislation is under consideration on April 9, 2019 in Sacramento.

We urge all citizens to make their voices heard.
