There is no cost for this event but please bring lunch ingredients as we will make a group lunch together. Farm vegetables will be provided by Smithereen Farm.

A call for reparations has been made by Black, Indigenous and People of Color, for the redistribution of land, wealth and resources. Five hundred years of colonialism and white supremacy on Turtle Island (aka “North America”) have concentrated power in the hands of those considered white, disrupting the interconnections between, and natural flowing of life within, human and more-than-human communities.

Reparations are a framework for balancing what has been taken out of balance; an on-going act of solidarity toward the liberation of all living beings.

Please join us and Douglass DeCandia for a gathering to deeply analyze the complex of white supremacy, to “map” the resources we each have access to (resources, time, land, money, social capital, technical skills, etc.) and to mobilize these resources toward Black, Indigenous and People of Color led organizing for self-determination and sovereignty on land.
