Collective Action – We support local, grassroots solutions for global challenges.
Education for Solidarity – We use experiential, community-based education tools that encourage learners to become change agents within larger social movements.
Reciprocity – We nurture diverse and mutually-beneficial relationships to support a just and sustainable world.
Anti-Oppression – We work to illuminate and challenge unjust systems of power and oppression on personal, institutional, and societal levels, striving to recognize assets within our network and to leverage these in support of our allies.
Equity of Power – We build collective responsibility through shared leadership, equal participation, and consensus.
Reflective Practice – We highly value our collective process and therefore continually evaluate and refine our goals, projects, communication, and decision-making systems.
