Land acknowledgment

DESC occupies the indigenous land of Coast Salish peoples. We ask you to join us in acknowledging their community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. DESC also acknowledges that many indigenous peoples from near and far were dislocated from their lands and cultural practices, resulting in many hardships including homelessness. We honor all Coast Salish and other indigenous peoples and commit to learning and identifying DESC’s role in undoing harm.
