LESBIANS OF COLOR OF LAND

Land support for under-represented Lesbians in the Lesbian land communities, specifically Lesbians of Color.  Connecting, resourcing, encouraging one another our dream is not too big. Program leaders of RootSeedGreen will have a grant budget and autonomy to assemble a grant committee for grants specific to RootSeedGreen without applicants forfeiting the ability to apply to the non-specific grant committee. Allies can be supportive in other ways. This program is for Lesbians of Color. 

We are here. We dream land. We work land. We live on land. We always have and never have.

Yet our face is not what you see in the back to the land movements, not in the sustainable communities movements, not in the food justice and whole foods movements. We are here. Our strength is here. Our passion is here. We need each other. We need to know we are not the only ones doing this, that others in other communities, in other parts of the continent, other parts of the world have the vision we have, And we have skills to share and ideas, and stories, yes, we have stories.

What if we found each other to share what we know and resource each other? What if while part of the entire Lesbian land community we made a space for just us, a space to say,  We are here.

If, in addition to the Lesbian Natural Resources email list to keep you updated about programs, you want to be part of a Lesbian of Color of Land Network, email RootSeedGreen@lesbiannaturalresources.org.
