TCCN Board statement on confronting white supremacy

We, the board of Twin Cities Cohousing Network, have been meeting to talk about and process what the killing of George Floyd and the world-wide anger and opportunity for global change means to us and to Twin Cities Cohousing Network. We want to listen, respond, and be part of the solution.

The mission of TCCN is to conduct education, outreach and engagement with individuals, families and organizations in order to advance the development of high quality, sustainable cohousing communities in the Greater Twin Cities area.

We recognize that this mission has been primarily accessible to middle-class white people, and needs to be reconsidered and become accessible to all.

As a start, we--as individuals and as a board--are committed to educating ourselves about racism and white supremacy. Here are some resources that we have looked at lately.

With gratitude and hope,
Becca Brackett
Brian PaStarr
Brooke Dierkhising
