Local Organizations Working for Equity
Our vision is to strengthen our communities in the Catskills by engaging residents and local businesses, fostering a safe and welcoming environment for our BIPOC and AAPI community, advocating for racial equality and promoting anti-racist education.
Founded in 2015, Bushel is a nonprofit, volunteer-run, interdisciplinary collective dedicated to growing community and discourse through programming in the arts, agriculture, ecology, and action. Located on Main Street in Delhi, New York (pop. 5,117), Bushel is an exploration of the relationships and conversations that can be forged in a low-population area by offering a space for gallery exhibitions, literary readings, musical performances, film screenings, discussions, meetings, co-working, classes and workshops, and other as-yet unexplored happenings. Inspired by both traditional rural meeting places and non-traditional storefront experiments, Bushel remains unwritten, indeterminate, and open-ended. [Get Woke! Sponsor]
Fair for All
The Fair for All campaign was launched in 2017 as a way to challenge the on-going sale of racist paraphernalia at the Delaware County Fair in Walton, NY. Since the group's inaugural press conference, involvement has expanded, and countless supporters have shared their stories of racism in all corners of the state. Our fight is no longer just a local one – Fair for All is committed to challenging the normalization of white supremacy at public family events state-wide. [Get Woke! Sponsor]
