equity takes everyday
listen, learn and take action
EQUITY ACTION

It can be easy to feel isolation, even loneliness, working on a little bubble of land, head down tending to all the many layers and details of keeping a diverse living system humming and healthy. However, the experience can also be one that connects us deeply with our local and global human family, as well as the systems of oppression that maintain inequality, great pain, ecological degradation, and the loss of vital traditional ecological knowledge, language and culture. 

Beyond understanding and connection, we know that action is necessary to create change. As a white cis male, I acknowledge that I have a lifetime of learning and active personal work around race, privilege, gender, inclusion, history, etc. I strive to stay engaged and committed to personal and community awareness building, as well as supporting organizations or individuals fighting for racial or gender equality.
