Whereas we are living on indigenous land, in a society that was founded on slavery, war, colonization, genocide, racism, patriarchy, systemic oppression, unspeakable violence, and destruction of land and resources, we believe it is our responsibility to stand in recognition of both current and historical traumas and begin normalizing reparation and settler responsibility practices in our communities.
We are open and interested in receiving feedback on best practices of how to do so. All feedback can be sent to email@example.com. We will try to respond to all feedback directly that indicates a response is desired.
It is certain that we will make mistakes and continually be learning in this process. We would rather learn by trying and failing and learn how to best support our community than to stand by quietly.
ACORNS NW was co-founded by two queer white women in 2016 who continue to operate the school on a mostly volunteer basis. We are seeking to offer powerful, healing and accessible programming while also aspiring to provide increasingly comfortable living wages for all staff. We hope to collaborate with our community in providing jobs and services that meet our community's needs. In an effort to keep programs as accessible as possible, we are currently running programs in city parks, including 10 weeks of summer camp. The school offers year-round programming for youth and adults, and currently serves a large homeschooling and unschooling population.
If you are a PoC seeking to provide programming to your community this summer and/or starting in the fall, we strongly encourage you to reach out to discuss opportunities for employment and program development. We are interested in supporting PoC only spaces, programs, classes, etc.
Examples of programs we'd like to see offered, and we are open to ideas and suggestions:
After-School Nature & Liberation-based programming
Adult Nature Connection & Liberation-based programming
Healing and Art Programs for all ages
Interested individuals can contact Kendra at firstname.lastname@example.org. Responses will be returned by mid-June, as they will be off-grid until then.
Still confused about what we are seeking to do?

You can also join the facebook group:
'Reparations: Requests and Offerings' to engage in reparations.
Thank you for your support and patience as we build and grow this school project. We don't have a lot of money for making fliers for the offer, please share.
