weaving our values & practices
Values & Practices is a collectively sourced, living and breathing set of agreements. It invites those of us who gather through the Center to ground ourselves within visions for autonomous and liberated communities.
Our Values & Practices were produced through a Zoom workshop and a phone call in February 2022 that gathered the Center’s inaugural team of Weavers: Denise Shanté Brown, Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Lizania Cruz, Kearra Amaya Gopee, Katie Giritlian, Bomin Jeon, Georgia McCandlish, and Malcolm Peacock, in collaboration with facilitators, Kimi Hanauer and Luz Orozco. Values & Practices is meant to be drafted and redrafted every year of the Center’s life, with contributions and insights from folks who are part of the Center’s community.

On the top of the page in bold all capital letters it says, “Weaving our Values & Practices” and underneath, in pink smaller letters it says, “Center for Liberatory Practice & Poetry” and “September 2022”. Behind the text, in stretched out pink letters, it says “MARCH” and on the top left corner it says, “MARCH is a journal of art & strategy.”
