Drawing on international examples of democratic citizen-powered alternatives, it offers a vision of a partner state that could enable equity and economic democracy, driven by civil society.
Nov 9 - Dec 7 | What's Up with White Women? | Ilsa Govan & Tilman Smith | Collective Praxis Book Club - Weekly Meetings
Collective Praxis Book Club
Authors Ilsa Govan and Tilman Smith are excited to offer a five-week series exploring how ideas in our book apply beyond the pages. Our hope is that participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the intersection of sexism and white privilege in their experiences and new ideas for living into anti-racist values.
Each session will stand alone and be accompanied by recommended pre-reading. Participants who commit to growing our community by attending all five sessions will receive a discount and be paired with another participant, an accountabilibuddy, for added connection and reflection.
We are two cisgender white women who offer a model that examines the harmful impact of white supremacy and patriarchy within a society that promotes a false gender binary. The content will center on cis and trans women and non-binary folx who have internalized white feminine gender norms, as well as multiracial women who present as or are perceived as white and want to interrogate internalized white superiority. People of all races and genders who want to engage in conversations about what’s up with white women are welcome to attend.
Host: Cultures Connecting
Date: Tuesdays November 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th, and December 7th
Time: 12pm - 1:30pm PST
Cost: $100 per session / $400 all sessions

Jan 27 | New Garden Ethic | Benjamin Vogt | The Fundamentals of Garden Layers
Native Plant and Sustainability Conference
When designing any garden, there is an opportunity to eschew the norms of beauty as the only priority. With careful planning, we can create a space that works in harmony with nature, expands biodiversity, builds healthy soil, and nurtures pollinators and other wildlife. Let’s learn from natural plant communities to increase ecosystem function and climate resilience at home in our designed gardens. From the fundamentals of seasonal and yearly plant succession, to using plant reproduction and sociability to fill ecological niches, the right native plant communities make all the difference for beautiful gardens both wildlife and people crave.
Host: Native Plant and Sustainability Conference
Date: Thurs, Jan 27, 22
Time: 1-4pm EST (Vogt session from 3-4pm)
