Welcome to Leaven Community

 

Leaven Community organizes people
...to share our stories, particularly our pressures and hopes 

and through our relationships & spiritual wisdoms
...to make meaning of our collective stories and
...act collectively with our neighbors for more equitable, diverse, thriving neighborhoods.


Spiritual People Relational People   People of Action

We attend and respond to the power that connects us through engagement with spiritual practices and conversations that nourish us for our work together. 

We build trust and deepen relationships as we attend to the personal and public dimensions of our stories and celebrate the abundance experienced in community. 

We publicly respond to social, economic and ecological inequity; acting powerfully together in neighborhood and citywide actions.
