Beloved community! I'm so excited to share this labor of Love! Please spread the word <3 Cohort 2 of the Underground Railroad is finally OPEN! It's time to chart a path to freedom! Our ancestors have been boldly innovating, dreaming, and transforming in the midst of the most oppressive circumstances for centuries. We are a part of this legacy. Join the UNDERGROUND RAILROAD: Liberatory Coaching for Creative Radicals of Color, and reconnect with your innate power to embrace art as subversive activism, community as sustainable prosperity, and ritual as collective healing. This 7-month coaching program supports people-of-color in manifesting our vision for collective liberation! We have everything we need right where we are. We just need to reveal it. In this 7-month coaching cohort you will connect to the creative tools of your ancestors to live a more meaningful life, and bring about social change!
Enrollment NOW OPEN through Friday, December 15th!
Program Calendar: Orientation on December 16th, 2017-Juneteenth Celebration on June 2nd, 2018.

Thank you to Loisaida Inc. Center for hosting Earth Celebrations and Ecological City and to all the gardeners, community organizations, school representatives, artists, activists and residents that joined for the ECOLOGICAL CITY planning meeting sharing their myriad climate resiliency and ecological sustainability initiatives throughout the community gardens, neighborhood and waterfront on the Lower East Side of New York City.

Inspiring presentations were shared on green infrastructure and coastal resiliency including plans for bio-swales, water harvesting, pollinator/permaculture gardens, urban organic agriculture/farm to table cooking, green roofs, bee farming, solar/wind energy and design projects, composting, holistic wellness, water filtration/gray-water recycling, plastic free zones/bio-desgradable packaging, zero waste lifestyles, carbon pricing and sustainable steward rewards. All these projects are in the process of being designed, developed and implemented throughout the neighborhood.

Looking forward to the creative engagement developing artistic works exploring these climate resiliency and ecological sustainability solutions, connecting local efforts with city and global climate challenges.
