There are a variety of ways to help tend our land and support our projects and events. Please fill out this quick form telling us a little more about your interests, skills and experience so we can get back to you as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we are not able to host volunteers at this time due to COVID-19. Please check back for updates. Read our statement on COVID-19.
Spread the Word
Talk to your family, friends and community about Sogorea Te’, the Shuumi Land Tax, and the movement to return land to Indigenous stewardship. Share our social media posts. Put a lawn sign in your yard or window. Tell people about our events and projects. Help people identify their relationship to the ongoing survival and liberation struggles of Indigenous people. Encourage them to think about what they can offer, find out what is useful, and make it happen.
When the local Indigenous community issues a call to action, show up! Attend actions and events and connect yourself with the community of people who are working on the protection and reclamation of Indigenous lands and related efforts.
If you live outside of the Bay Area, find out whose ancestral homeland you’re living on. Contact local tribal elders and leadership (link to how to come correct doc). Find out what’s needed to support the survival and wellbeing of Indigenous people and look for meaningful ways to contribute.
Host a Screening
Beyond Recognition, a short documentary about the creation of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, is available to be screened.
