Black Land Matters

I (Raven) have put out in several places that I am more concerned about diversity among communities than diversity within communities. But having a true diversity of communities requires many different folks having access to the things that can help build community. Land is one of them. Historically, Black folks have been denied access to land. Here is an important proposal to change that and support communities of color in a way that really matters. Rejoice found this resource and I happily published it in our ongoing series of Facebook posts about diversity and race.

Here is the information on the page that the link goes to. If you want to know more here is the link to the actual article (which then has links to resources and the full proposal).

Unfortunately, this piece was not seen by that many folks (unfortunate because I think that it contains really important information). I did get three great comments on the piece, including one from Rejoice who alerted me to the article in the first place. I totally agree with Cara’s comment.

We will be back on Monday, with more on the topic of race and diversity in communities.
