Basis of Unity

Common values enable collaboration across our communities. Collectively we commit to:

Organizing

with, and for, our communities; our activism comes from the heart, and through it, we fearlessly commit to confronting injustice and oppression.

Protecting

the land, the air, and the water; the home for all life on this planet.

Decolonizing

through our respectful relationships with the original people and spirit of this territory.

Respecting

all living beings and fight for their indiscriminate access to justice, dignity, and equality.

Engaging

in the collective responsibility of shaping our communities and holding leaders to account.

Collectivizing

the capital that we produce and support local networks of exchange; we intentionally deconstruct capitalism.

Sharing

knowledge through mentorship and community-based education; we learn through reflection, and action, directed at changing the world.

Healing

and caring for one another by sharing medicines, food, and healing practices.

Creating

space for different and alternative expressions; diversity is our strength and is fundamental for the existence of arts, cultures, spiritualities, and a better world.
