Releaf centers equity and liberation through our values and practices as an organization. As a network created by and for BIPOC in so-called Vermont (unceded Abenaki territory), we prioritize living out our values of collective care and liberation for communities of color. Our work centers our community members - people of color in Vermont who are interested in land, environment, agriculture, and food.
We value the time and involvement of community members in the Collective, and recognize that folk of color in Vermont are often asked to provide unpaid labor in many spaces. This is why we emphasize the importance of compensating folks for facilitating, providing feedback, and other support shared with the community. We also play an active role in encouraging this culture across Vermont, and practice this by including our job posting guidelines as prerequisite information for external opportunity requests that are shared with our community. Feedback is a critical component of the Releaf community, and space for feedback within the Releaf team will continue to be a key facet as we bring on this new staff person.
This role will be our second full-time staff position, and the Board of Directors is eager to learn and grow with our growing staff, and continue to co-create an organizational culture that aligns with the values of our vibrant community: collective care, liberation, and radical re-imagination.
