We're getting more and more excited about our upcoming Community For All event. You can find all the information and REGISTER here: https://www.cohousing.org/2020-all/ In the meantime, here's a taste of what we'll learn that day. Stories from BIPOC Cohousers Joi Faison, Rosemary Linares and Alicia Wilson-Ahlstrom will share their experiences of living in cohousing as women of color. Moderator, Crystal Bryd Farmer, will guide the conversation and take your questions. Bring your curiosity, you might just hear something that surprises you. Yana Ludwig Class, Culture and Community We will take a brief look at how class and classism affect our attempts to create functional communities. Class differences and tensions are present in almost every community project, and when unaddressed, this creates a number of barriers for getting the culture we want, and to one of the most common community goals: affordability. Yana will offer some tips and exercises for getting into a productive conversation about class. Joe Cole What’s in a Name? How a shift in values from diversity to racial equity guided a community name change process, while revealing that we still have a long way to go to overcome racism in ourselves and in our mostly white community. We’ll talk strategies for expanding racial awareness, addressing racism and white privilege, and building resilience for the path ahead. Fresh “Lev” White Beauty and Diversity Invoking and acknowledging the importance of the beauty and diversity in nature we’ll reflect on ‘us’ as a product of its brilliance. Looking at ways our culture is richer because of the diversity of people who contribute to it, we’ll learn to welcome our similarities, and honor are differences as opportunities for growth. -- Karen Gimnig Communications Director The Cohousing Association of the US www.cohousing.org 678-705-9007
