Our Progressive Community

Rod Howe

There are many heritage tour ideas that have been generated over the past year for visitors and residents alike. Two that we would like to start developing build on our community's reputation as being both a socially involved and an "alternative" place. Please send me ideas of what might be included in an "alternative" Ithaca tour and one that would focus on our long history of being involved in social movements. A tour needs specific points to visit to help interpret the historic theme being highlighted - think in terms of people and places.

To seed your thinking here are a few examples. On the "alternative" front: Ithaca Hours, Rongovian Embassy, EcoVillage, and 1960 communes. In terms of social movements: anti-slavery, women's suffrage, and environmental justice.

I look forward to hearing from you.
