What is a Dare to Repair Cafe you might ask? It’s a popup community event where you can bring a broken item and work with a team of fixers to try and repair the item for FREE!
Dare to Repair’s goal is to share repair skills, save money, and keep things in circulation and out of the landfill for as long as possible.
All participants are asked to register for the event ahead of time to help with an estimated headcount and gauge what sort of items people will be bringing.

Celebrate the Right to Repair in NYS
With Governor Hochul signing the Digital Fair Repair Act into law on December 28, 2022, New York State has become one of the first states in the nation to codify the Right to Repair : https://www.ifixit.com/News/70515/new-york-passes-historic-right-to-repair-bill
While last minute lobbying from various manufacturers led to major carve outs in the bill, this is nonetheless a major victory for repair advocates in the state.
