Relocalization in Massachusetts; Rebuilding Community for a Sustainable Future
Men anpil chay pa lou. This Haitian proverb means many hands together make the burden light. It was written on an old political poster, printed by the Red Sun Press on display at the Haley House Café in Dudley Square, Roxbury. This proverb evokes the ideas of community, justice, and change—all of which are crucial elements of Relocalization in Massachusetts. Relocalization is a national movement to bring life closer to home, to a local level, in order to create “resilient, healthy, just, diverse, sustainable, people-powered communities.”

Building momentum for a relocalized, revitalized, democratized Massachusetts
With economies and ecosystems unraveling all around us, it’s clear we need bold and decisive action IMMEDIATELY for a healthy, just, green future. Thankfully there is a grassroots movement bubbling up from below, pushing for transformative action.
