Land Liberation Community Co-Learning Circles
Community education is critical to the success of our work. In order to build a movement of people who are aware of the inequalities that manifest in the tenure of land, who seek to transform these unjust relationships, and who are inspired to participate in actively changing their own relationships to land, we need to provide opportunities for people to learn and reflect collectively.
We are currently considering pathways for the development of a popular education curriculum and community-based co-learning project that would highlight histories of land injustice in Maine as well as explore change-oriented solutions. The project is in a exploratory phase, as we learn about similar projects elsewhere and have conversations with leaders and organizers from front-line communities across the state.
If we pursue this project, it would likely take the form of a collaborative effort among people from diverse communities directly affected by land injustice, racism, colonialism, and class inequality to collectively develop the curriculum and work out the structure for sharing it. We’ll post updates as things unfold.
In the meantime, please let us know if you have ideas about this work, or if you’d like to be part of the conversation!
