Let's Get Free Together: Coming Together to Examine Oppression

The Land Stewardship Project's mission to transform the farm and food system, and the greater economy, requires us to come together across our differences, engage in our institutions and elections, build our collective power, and assert the collective power we already have. As we challenge corporate control over our communities, we must recognize and dismantle the legacy of oppression that orchestrated today’s reality.

Join fellow Land Stewardship Project members in growing and deepening our understanding, relationships, and work to advance systemic change by signing up for the first training in a Let's Get Free Together series of trainings for members launching this fall!

Let’s Get Free Together: Coming Together to Examine Oppression

Training Overview:
The purpose of this training is to come together and get clear about the root causes of the problems we face. Throughout the training, members will:

• Examine oppression at a personal vs. systemic level.
• Explore different types of oppression.
• Share experiences about how systemic oppression impacts them directly.
