Community Action Center
Trainings focused on equity, inclusion and justice by deepening the understanding of structural oppressions in place that support inequality and impact marginalized communities.
We focus on social emotional learning, trauma informed education acquiring tools and resources of cultivating coping mechanisms rooted in restorative healing needed to challenge and change systemic inequities.
We utilize the arts to address systemic inequity, dismantle socializations, patterns, narratives of internalized oppression.
We focus on ecological justice education by tending to plants to understand the mutually beneficial exchange between people and nature, tuning our senses to the subtle needs of living things. In understanding how plants work, we understand more deeply the intricate ecosystems that sustain life on this planet. This understanding motivates us to make choices that honor the earth and in turn improve the quality of human life.

“THE TRUE FOCUS OF REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE IS NEVER
MERELY THE OPPRESSIVE SITUATIONS WHICH WE SEEK TO ESCAPE, BUT THAT PIECE OF THE OPPRESSOR WHICH IS PLANTED DEEP WITHIN EACH OF US, AND WHICH KNOWS ONLY THE OPPRESSORS' TACTICS, THE OPPRESSORS'
