The Indigenous Concerns Subcommittee of PacYM’s Ministry Committee invites you to our upcoming webinar on Ethical Land on Zoom, Monday, February 12, at 7pm.
About the presenters
Cassandra Ferrera (director of Ethical Land Transition)
Becoming a person of place is Cassandra’s orienting cosmology, and her activist real estate career is informed by this path. She became a real estate agent in 2003 and she committed early on to finding ways to decommodify and deprivatize Land. Cassandra listened her way forward, guided by the generosity of spirit, mentors, and friends who would help her co-found The Center for Ethical Land Transition. Through the work of ethical land transitions, Cassandra works to transform conventional real estate practice in service to Land, cultural reunion, and reparative justice.
