Many of these communities are fighting for the official title and control over their land\, but have been facing issues such as structural racism. \n  \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nGullah Geeche Nation \nGullah Geeche Nation extends from Jacksonville\, NC to Jacksonville\, FL. The Gullah/Geechee people have been considered “a nation within a nation” from the time of chattel enslavement in the United States until They officially became an internationally recognized nation on July 2\, 2000. Their mission is to preserve\, protect\, and promote their history\, culture\, language\, and homeland and to institute and demand official recognition of the governance (minority) rights necessary to accomplish their mission to take care of their community through collective efforts which will provide a healthy environment\, care for the well beings of each person\, and economic empowerment. \n  \n\n\n\n\n\n \n\n\nPelenques Cuban Slave Settlements\nThe first recorded uprising of enslaved Africans in Cuba took place in 1533 at the Jobabo mines. There were frequent uprisings thereafter with the participants escaping into the mountains and linking with indigenous Taino groups to form independent African maroon settlements called Palenques. \n  \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nRepublic of New Afrika \n Republic of New Afrika (RNA)\, was born in March 1968\, when five hundred black nationalists met in Detroit. The RNA’s avowed purpose was to culturally and literally separate African Americans from mainstream American culture and to set up a new nation consisting of five states in the South—Alabama\, Georgia\, Louisiana\, Mississippi\, and South Carolina. \n  \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nUmoja Village \nThe village was founded in 1990 by a group of 15 women who were survivors of rape by local British soldiers. Umoja’s population has now expanded to include any women escaping child marriage\, female genital mutilation\, domestic violence and rape – all of which are cultural norms among the Samburu. \n  \n\n\n\n \n\n\n\nRegistration\n\n \n \n\n \n \n \n\n\n \n Panel–Reviving the Black Cooperative Intentional Community MovementFrom: $10.00 \n\n Date: February 4 \nTime: 7-8:30pm ET (see your local time) \nSelect a donation level below to register.\n\nBIPOC folx: Please contact us at events@ic.org to request a scholarship. \nYou’ll receive an email about how to join on Zoom (please check your spam folder).

Cynthia breaks down all the concepts and inspires you find the community you’re looking for through resources and insightful advice from her own experience.” \n—Molly McKinney \n\n\n“Cynthia proved to be an excellent ally in assisting me in my search for ecovillages and communities. She was super-knowledgeable\, thorough\, kind\, thoughtful\, and an excellent listener. She recommended several sites that I had not heard of\, many of the which she had visited personally. I felt very inspired and hopeful after our session — her enthusiasm for the regenerative movement is very infectious and genuine\, which combined with her experience and commitment made her a great helper for finding the best next steps forward for myself.” \n—Adam Morrison \n\n\n“Cynthia has a wealth of information about IC’s around the world\, and presented in a way that felt welcoming and inclusive. The breakout group helped me get a sense of the diversity of the backgrounds of people  interested in intentional community.” \n—Allison S. \n\n\nRegistration\n \n \n \n\n \n \n \n\n\n \n Intro to Intentional Communities around the GlobeFree! \n\n Date: 2nd Wednesday of each month \nTime: 10:00-11:30am PT / 1:00-2:30pm ET \nSelect a donation level below to register. \nYou’ll receive an email about how to join on Zoom (please check your spam folder).

It was truly inspiring to see so many committed people working together. \nI loved the vibe of the facilitators and the shared connection/warmth in the breakout calls.  \nBeing with all the people from intentional communities was amazing. I thought the leadership team organized well and made us all feel welcome. I enjoyed the breakout groups and the connections made. I enjoyed the poetry and meditations. I thought it was helpful when people spoke about the challenges they were having during this crisis. \n \n\n\n\n\n\n\nRegistration\n \n \n \n\n \n \n \n\n\n \n Community Connect 2022Free! \n\n Select a donation level below to register.
