In a thread started on May 23 about City Repair Project and VBC ( http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/05/339837.shtml) some people said that the "leaders" of City Repair Project haven't taken criticism seriously. I love CRP's ideas and have been involved with them on and off for a few years. But I've seen that some leaders listen to criticisms, and some really don't. Unfortunately it seems like many many of those people (many of them women) who HAVE listened and tried to do something about CRP's issues have ended up leaving in frustration. I wonder if the leaders that have stayed ever asked WHY these people left.
Can we hear some stories, good or bad, about the internal workings of CRP from people who were/are involved? It's a great group of people and a great idea, we should help it become better and better.
