If you appreciate having Boston Acupuncture Project in your neighborhood, consider joining POCA, the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture. POCA is a multi-stakeholder cooperative of patients, providers, clinics, and organizations working together to increase accessibility to and availability of affordable group acupuncture treatments.
Boston Acupuncture Project wouldn’t be here without our co-op. That’s why we’re saying “thank you!” in October by offering $15 treatments for all new and current POCA members, all month long.
POCA dues for community members are on a sliding scale from $25 – $100 per year. You decide what to pay. Just like our treatments, membership is the same no matter what you pay on the sliding scale. Your dues fund projects like:
UPDATE April 21, 2019: congrats to UCFW workers on a tentative contract agreement with Stop & Shop! Our offer (details below) is extended one week, through April 28, 2019.
Boston Acupuncture Project offers free acupuncture treatments to all Stop & Shop workers currently on strike in our community and across New England. Workers on strike are welcome to up to 3 free treatments per week through May 1, 2019 (or until the strike ends, if that’s sooner)! Just show your Stop & Shop name badge or UFCW membership card.
While we can’t do much to help with the uncertainty of being on strike, we want to offer a concrete opportunity for stress relief (plus treatment for anxiety, trauma, pain, and many other health concerns) at a very stressful time!
Some ways to support Stop & Shop workers on strike: 1. do not shop at Stop & Shop grocery stores while the strike is happening 2. bring water and food to striking workers on the picket line at your local Stop & Shop 3. sign this petition to tell Stop & Shop to listen to worker demands: bit.ly/supportSSworkers 4. give to the fund for striking Stop & Shop workers in need: https://www.gofundme.com/supportstopandshopworkers
