Here’s your chance to meet Dr. Edgar Cahn, creator of Time Banking, in person.
By Shadi Absi
Dr. Cahn and his wife, Dr. Christine Gray, will be on hand for a meet and greet at the Zweet Cafe in Eagle Rock.
Dr. Edgar Cahn is a distinguished legal professor who created Time Banking, a community-based currency that’s been used for over 30 years in more than 38 countries, and values everyone’s time equally. In addition to his dedication to fight for social justice, he was Robert F. Kennedy’s former speechwriter, co-founder of the National Legal Services Program and the Antioch School of Law (now the David A. Clarke School of Law at the University of the District of Columbia).
Dr. Christine Gray has a PhD from UCLA, and was the former CEO of TimeBanks, Inc. She now teaches courses and workshops on co-production, TimeBanking, and Systems Thinking on the community, professional, and graduate school levels.

Timebanking is a time-based currency that helps to build circles and network of mutual support. With timebanking, you give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit. An hour is always an hour — regardless of the service offered. You can use the credits in turn to receive services — or you can donate them to others.
