Here's another taste of sessions available: Crystal Byrd Farmer Lessons From The Token What do the experiences of minorities in community tell us about increasing diversity in cohousing? In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to identify and get feedback from potential members so you can create a more inclusive community. We’ll also talk about how privilege, bias, and microaggressions in everyday life keep marginalized people away from intentional communities, and what you can do about it. Moderator: Grace Kim Panel: Emma Sutton, Kathy Sayers Embracing Income Diversity in Urban Cohousing For some, buying a home in cohousing is a real-estate transaction. They weigh the “value” of the home relative to price, square footage, neighborhood comps, and resale value. Two urban communities (one completed, one forming) share their experiences of who shows up you prioritize community and diversity, over selling homes. Daisy K. Birch Allyship as a Core of Community Transformation Anyone can aspire to, and become an ally; through consistent self-inquiry, research, egoless listening, and selfless service. Yet, allyship cannot be self-proclaimed. We’ll cover what allyship is, and isn’t; the do’s and don’ts, the A-Z’s, and why it’s an imperative part of any individual’s, community’s, and country’s enlightenment and healing. Nancy Kelly What’s “Sexual Orientation” got to do with it? Why identify LGBTQI as an Intentional community? For individuals who desire a greater understanding of why LGBTQI elders may desire a co-housing community dedicated to providing an authentic experience of safety and freedom to express oneself in relationship and identity. Currently, 31 states do not provide protection in employment and housing for LGBTQI people. Even people who support LGBTQI rights often unknowingly marginalize people who are not heterosexual through policies, marketing and language. A look at inherent societal heterosexual bias will cover why LGBTQI elders feel social isolation to a greater extent than their heterosexual peers, why they fear getting older and how an intentional co-housing community for 55 + LGBTQI people and allies is making a difference in their lives. -- Karen Gimnig Communications Director The Cohousing Association of the US www.cohousing.org 678-705-9007
