CommunityForge and its members’ motivation is: To create connection rather than property
Our desire reflects a lifestyle choice, a desire to position ourselves, to blossom, to experience mutual aid, to resist the dominant system, with the desire to see the world evolve towards more citizenship and solidarity.
