Vision 

A restorative and resilient society — one in which we meet our needs in a way that we care for each other, care for the land, and limit our use while sharing surpluses.

Action & Aspirations

To create spaces for people to connect, share skills and resources, and practice working cooperatively with people and community organizations to accelerate the transition to a restorative and resilient society.

  • Our ability to care and support is abundant, not scarce.

  • People can work well with other people to achieve unimaginable creativity.

  • Communication, especially our listening and observing with curiosity, is a base to change and can always improve.

  • Diversity is something we cherish and integrate, rather than segregate.

  • We meet challenge and controversy with empathy and creativity.

  • Everyone has something unique and important to contribute, not just a select few.

  • We live in systems of injustice and we choose to acknowledge them and redesign them by centring the voices of people historically and/or currently oppressed.

Languages

Welcome – I was raised to speak the english language used by my family in Canada (Northern Turtle Island)

 

Willkommen – My ancestry on both sides, both maternal and paternal, is European mostly German and English

 

Aanii – “Greetings,” in one of the languages of Objibwe, Anishinabe, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations peoples, whose traditional territory I was born and raised on

Land Acknowledgement

We live and work on the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of the Odawa, Ojibwe, and Potawatomi Nations.

As a settler who is aware of the historical and ongoing violence of colonialism in this area and who works for the creation of a diverse community that benefits all people, I reflect on the following questions to guide my actions:

- What are the obligations to the people who first inhabited this land? 
- How do settlers on this land figure out what their responsibilities are? 
- How can we be good guests here? 
- How can we support existing local struggles? 
- And how can we support Indigenous self-determination in the longer term? 


Questions and dialogue continued from Fairfield Gonzales Community Association.
