Categories

Community

List your forming or established intentional community. An intentional community is a residential community that lives according to its values. These intentional communities can be composed of people of all backgrounds, but the community should have diversity, inclusion, and a commitment to anti-oppression work as part of its values. You can also list co-ops, meetups, and collectives.

In accordance with the United States Fair Housing Law, any listing that advertises housing may not show intent to discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, handicap/disability, or familial status. Your listing may not describe your community as only accepting BIPOC members, and do not describe current or potential residents in racial or ethnic terms. Please see this page for more information about advertising and the Fair Housing Law. The BIPOC Council will remove listings that appear to violate the Fair Housing Law.

Consultant

If you are a professional that works with intentional communities or individuals, list your services and contact information. This includes real estate agents, diversity consultants, lawyers, permaculture educators, grant writers, and insurance brokers. If you want to offer services in the form of books, workshops, or courses, please use the Resources category.

Resource

List websites, books, and other resources that are helpful for intentional community members and seekers. The BIPOC Council will remove listings that appear to be scams or promote unethical business practices.
