Hello City Roots friends!

2020 is coming to a close, and we want to say thank you. Here at City Roots CLT, we want different. We want a different life, to define what it means to be a neighbor, to be in community with others differently. This simple fact can get buried under the confusion of current events, a plethora of takes, or just the latest local news. So how do we create new ways of life in these times—communal, imaginative, and enduring? Over time, we're reclaiming land & homes, cultivating front yards, blurring property lines and breaking with an architecture of separation. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for being on this journey with us, as we begin to create the difference we want to see, even in the most unlikely of places. 

Today is the last day to donate to our end of the year fundraising campaign! For the holiday season, we've been highlighting our Community Partner Organizations and all they do for the community on our social media.
Click on any of the organizations above to learn more about the work they do, then click here to donate to our Holiday Fundraising Drive! You can choose which campaign you'd like to dedicate your donation to. Help City Roots CLT reach the goal! 
Thank you for all of your support, have a happy new year! 
The holidays are here! It's been a hectic year and City Roots CLT and our community has grown so much! We want everyone in  City Roots work to be acknowledged for all they do.

We'll be reaching out to all of our prospective members on their vision for City Roots, and how they would like to be more involved.
