This is what urban sustainability media and advocacy should look like: personal, inclusive, and dynamically uplifting.
We're a catalyst for creating truly environmentally just city living and inclusive social movements, with women and girls from historically marginalized neighborhoods, demographics, and communities prioritized as beneficiaries and presented as innovative social entrepreneurs, strategically redefining and then treading the green path.

WHO + WHAT
The Homesteadista is a social impact non profit. We are re-imagining media and advocacy ecosystems that elevate the perception, value and trailblazing work of historically marginalized women and girls within the environmental justice movement. By leveraging the connectivity of media and personal narrative (magazine, app, video, virtual learning and networking), we flip the advocacy paradigm to prioritize and support under-resourced women as vital change-making partners and beneficiaries. Through storytelling, essays, and interactive platforms, we provide women and girls equitable access to resources and pathways to successfully plan, participate in and benefit from urban sustainability social policies and practice. The Homesteadista celebrates these women and girls as creative, resourceful, courageous leaders and presents their journey so others may be nurtured toward their own agency and change making.
