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.
