About the group:  

This is an umbrella resource group for people of color who are interested in living in an intentional community together. Out of this larger group, the hope is for smaller, core groups to emerge and start meeting, getting to know each other and exploring shared values, with the ultimate goal of living together. The inspiration for this meetup is a Rastafarian concept, livity, shared by Diana Marie Lee (

), meaning “your entire way of life is your medicine.” We will serve as a hub to connect people of color (poc) who are interested in investing in, buying, or renting-to-own cohousing in the East Bay. We will also create a network of people of color interested in starting or moving into poc-owned homes and other creative living arrangements, as well as connect more people of color to established cohousing and coops in the SF Bay Area. It’s quite possible that gardening and living together and building community together is the most radical work. –Adrienne Marie Brown
