Creating Equity in Rural Communities

  • School for International Training Brattleboro, VT (map)

The RootSkills series is about building networks. We’re strengthening movements by making powerful, intersectional connections between a broad spectrum of participants all working towards a common goal.

An open call to our networks for workshop sessions has resulted in offerings that are about helping grassroots organizers develop their own solutions to complex environmental and social justice issues that affect where they live. Workshop sessions are both process and issue-based. This event will focus on racial and economic disparities as we consider in/equity in rural, New England communities.

Abel Luna, Migrant Jusitice
Ben Hewitt, Rural Vermont
Shay Stewart-Bouley, Black Girl in Maine
