We are on track: Lets plan a legal strategy ground
By Ariadna Godreau Aubert - Founder and director
After eight months of meetings and workshops, the community paralegals are finally ready to decide on the future of the strategy. We are currently working on decision-making processes to advance climate and land justice for their communities. The recurring topics are dignified housing, anti-displacement efforts, and security of tenure.
We want to share with you some elements of that discussion. We created a safe space - and a board game!- to discuss three factors that measure legal empowerment readiness: need, desirability, and commonality. We have the responsibility to nurture a community-led process that relies on their capacities and trust-building processes. If we fail to do so, we would be practicing colonial legal work, disinvesting the community of their will to transform their reality. These conversarions help keep ourselves accountable to one another.
Today we celebrate the experiences we are sharing with the people at El Ancón. We are grateful for this space and program. We know we need continuous support. We want to ensure this program sustains itself for another year, and we need your donations to make it possible. Please share this report, share this project, and donate.
