The Anti-Indigenous Handbook


ABCD and Indigenous Communities/First Nations


I came across this today and thought I'd share it with you all. I admit that I just skimmed it (I usually try to read things pretty thoroughly before sharing) but it came from a reliable source and I thought you all might want to check it out.

The Anti-indigenous Handbook: https://www.texasobserver.org/the-anti-indigenous-handbook/

Small Town Creed: An Idea-Friendly Town


ABCD and Rural Communities


I was able to participate in a really interesting conference - the Radically Rural Summit - on Sept. 24. One of the first things I want to share from this event is the Small Town Creed, from Saveyour.town. It's so asset-based without even mentioning ABCD. You can find it here or open the attached file.

You might also want to watch this short video about creating an idea-friendly town

What is your favorite resource or tool when you work with rural communities?


ABCD and Rural Communities

I'm always interested in what works with different communities. Is there a particular resource or tool that you find helpful when working with rural communities?

A great resource: Rural Assembly & Center for Rural Strategies


ABCD and Rural Communities


I came across interesting rural resources recently. You might want to check them out....

Rural Assembly This group posts on FaceBook and they have a great newsletter. Check them out!

Here's how they describe themselves: We are on a path toward building a rural movement that empowers leaders, and connects them to each other, helps urban-based institutions engage with rural communities effectively, and offers the country a reliable network of rural problem solvers

Center for Rural Strategies

The Rural Assembly is a project of the Center for Rural Strategies. The Center's mission is:

At the Center for Rural Strategies, we seek to improve economic and social conditions for communities in the countryside and around the world through the creative and innovative use of media and communications. We strive to create better opportunities for small towns and rural communities by building coalitions, developing partnerships, leading public information campaigns, and advancing strategies that strengthen connections between rural and urban places.

How are you taking care of yourself during this difficult time?


Coronavirus and Communities


One thing I really appreciate about where I live is the beautiful natural world right outside my door. I have many places where I can walk and still keep appropriate physical distancing from people. This picture is of a swamp near our home. It's one of my favorite places to walk, especially now that spring is coming. It's really beautiful and full of life.

How has your community responded to the coronavirus pandemic?


Coronavirus and Communities

From an article in the Independent:

As life in Italy grinds to a halt amid a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, one street was filled with song as the community banded their voices together in solidarity.

A video of people singing out of their windows on a neighbourhood street in Siena, Tuscany, went viral on social media, with many calling it a “beautiful” act of humanity.

“People of my hometown Siena sing a popular song from their houses along an empty street to warm their heart during the Italian Covid-19 lockdown,” wrote a Twitter user who posted the video.

Watch the video here:

Data About the Effective Use of ABCD by Cities and Non-Profits in the US


Data, Evaluation, and Research

I’m going to jump into this conversation because it’s just so interesting! Eddy, it seems to me that what you’re describing is something like this community... ABCD in Action.... but for the members you work with. As one of the leads on ABCD in Action, I’m always thinking about how do we build community in a virtual space. If you’d like to have a conversation about this, feel free to contact me at abcdinaction@gmail.com and we’ll see if we can find a time to talk.

Who Are You? Why are you here?


ABCD and Inclusive Communities/People with Disabilities

Hi Louie - Welcome to ABCD in Action. So great to have you join this community. I agree that ABCD approaches are essential in thinking about human rights at a localized level. It sounds like you are involved in some interesting stuff in Leeds! I’m interested in hearing more from you about how you are using ABCD to increase the sense of belonging in a neighborhood.
