IT IS OUR DUTY TO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM. IT IS OUR DUTY TO WIN. WE MUST LOVE EACH OTHER AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER.WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT OUR CHAINS. - ASSATA SHAKUR
The purpose of our collective is to cultivate change makers for the next seven generations by improving the health and well-being of the most impacted communities.
The business of our collective is to provide innovative, culturally relevant approaches that support resident civic engagement and support work to end mass incarceration.
MILPA uses healing-informed, relationship-centered approaches to incubate next generation leadership and infrastructure while striving for racial and social justice.
MILPA works with local, state, and national institutions through trainings, technical assistance, and the establishment of best practices.
Join the Movement
MILPA is a mission-driven, formerly incarcerated cadre committed to supporting next-generation infrastructure and leadership within community, organizations, institutions, and systems.
The word MILPA is derived from the UTO-AZTECAN Nahuatl language word milli that when translated means "field."
Our work is based on an agricultural philosophy of Las Tres Hermanas, which was and is based on work, cultural tradition, and community.
MILPA provides training and technical assistance to strategic initiatives and other aligned entities or community groups using cultural frameworks.
