Our Values

Our work is informed by our values. We state share them here for accountability, intention, and for your information.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the land on which we live are the ancestral lands of the Lenni Lenape people, whose presence and resilience in Pennsylvania continues to this day. We honor the original caretakers of this land and recognize the history of land theft, violence, erasure, and oppression that has brought our organization and ourselves here. Learn more about the Lenape Nation here.

PDDC also acknowledges the labor and example of other activists who have modeled and educated us about the importance of land acknowledgments, including Activism Beyond the Classroom, Girls Rock Philly, Philadelphia Orchard Project, Sankofa Community Farm, and the Native Governance Center.
