We practice culture making by integrating skills building and organizing tactics with joyful strategies, art, community care and celebration.

We value food sovereignty, solidarity, inclusiveness, cooperation and egalitarian decision making and anti-racist participatory governance. 

We value democratic worker led projects and policies, created by listening to and including community voices in decision making. 

We value the local network of people working toward this shared purpose. We look to state, national and regional level solutions, and build partnerships and alliances with organizations succeeding in what we are striving for.
