Burning Bush: Center for the Working Poor

The Center for the Working Poor is an inter-faith intentional community inspired by the Catholic Worker movement and New Monasticism, which is committed to strategic non-violent social change.  These are our core principles and programs: 1) Strategic Nonviolence 2) Voluntary Simplicity and Intentional Community 3) Hospitality and Mutual Aid Mental Health Community 4) The Burning Bush Newsletter and website 5) Community Building 6) Spirituality and Faith in Action.

Some of our community members live and work as full-time volunteers at the Center, and other community members work in careers outside the Center. We all share a commitment to live in community, share a few meals a week, and a common vision of non-violent social change to benefit the most oppressed in our society. Volunteer members run the Center for the Working Poor, which is a non-profit that provides services for poor, and organizes protest and social movement activity. Our specialty is helping to organize social movements, and facilitating the use of strategic nonviolence throughout the world. We are a spiritual community which observes Christian contemplative practices; however, this is not a requirement for participation or membership at the Center. We have people of many faiths and beliefs in our community.
