Legalize Community: session 1
Please join us for a fully participant-focused series on legalizing community. This series will address creating changes that address important intersectional crises’ including, but not limited to: Affordable housing, food security, ecosystem regeneration, maker spaces, mental health, elder care, education, and more. There are areas where all, or most, of these crises’ meet, and the main focus will be on how zoning and land-use policy affects this at all government levels. We will be focused on Cowichan Valley currently, but this can be applied to any bioregion, creating a citizens assembly and advocating for common vision and needs. If you want to start a group in your bioregion, start with us here and then reach out and we will support you to catalyze that.
We are looking forward this first session in a regular series and online spaces where members of the community can come together in unity around a common vision and set of needs, boundaries, requests.
Current format for the meeting:
7pm – Introduction and opening by Jared Qwustenuxun Williams
7:30pm – Mark Lakeman talks on legalizing community
8pm – Tad Hargrave joins for a short talk on supporting sustainable local businesses
8:15pm – Questions and answers, organizing action groups, voting on important items.
9pm – Closing, invitation to continue to participate or co-create, people welcome to stay on if more time is needed.
Through the member system you sign up for to gain access to the sessions, we will be emailing you regularly with: Updates, calls to action, requests/needs, opportunities, and more. These are all optional. If many of us take even small actions towards a common vision, we can have big impact.
