“A united family eats from the same plate” ~ Baganda proverb
So many civil and human rights activists have dedicated their lives to “building a better world”, a world that respects humanity and life in general; a world free of hunger, racism, bigotry and injustice. Too often aging activists have fallen by the wayside, been rendered homeless, disregarded and in many cases forgotten. The question we are left to face is, “Who will fight for the fighters”?
Liberation Housing serves as transitional & wellness habitations for veteran civil rights activists. These transitional houses are designed to provide temporary shelter and promote wellness and independence by providing supportive residential and outreach programs with a mission to help the veteran organizers to regain valuable and meaningful roles in the community by supplying them with much needed essentials and dire assistance.
The goal of our Liberation Houses is to offer shared housing cooperatives with a safe and restful environment and living experience. The occupant capacity will depend on the size of each particular house or building. Ideally, each location will be equipped with an organic fruit and vegetable garden and community spaces for resident functions as well as classes on agriculture, healthy relationships, personal finance, and health. It is a labor of love and a work in progress however, we are determined to make sure our community elders are comforted, loved and respected for their efforts.
In the words of Harriet Tubman, “I have heard their groans and sighs, and seen their tears, and I would give every drop of blood in my veins to free them”
