WILD GEESE FOUNDATION

Mission

Wild Geese Foundation works in an intersectional manner to defend human rights, promote food justice and sovereignty, and to uplift youth. We acknowledge a society in which marginalized humans do not thrive is unsustainable.

We support sustainable food justice and agriculture at the community level in Massachusetts as well as everyone’s right to reproductive self-determination. We support Black, Indigenous, and People of Color leadership with the understanding that centuries of white supremacy and violence must be overcome. We support climate justice work to restore our planet to health so life can be nurtured.

We believe, as Mary Oliver said, “You do not have to walk on your knees” to access resources needed for the work to be done.
