The Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons is connected to a rich network of collaborative partnerships and organizations that support and stand with the Somali Bantu community, who make up one-sixth of the population of the Lewiston-Auburn twin cities along the banks of the Androscoggin River in Maine.
The Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons is located on unceded Wabanaki Confederacy land. The Wabanaki Nations—Abenaki, Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot—have stewarded the land in what is now known as Maine for thousands of years. We are committed to building reciprocal and meaningful relationships with the Indigenous people of this land and advocating for recognition and respect of their inherent sovereignty. We understand that justice and liberation for our people is not possible without justice and liberation for the People of the Dawnland.
The Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons is organized and shall be operated exclusively for the purpose of holding title to property, collecting income therefrom, and turning the entire amount, less expenses, to the AGRARIAN LAND TRUST within the meaning of Section 501(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Code”). Agrarian Land Trust, the parent corporation of Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons, is a California nonprofit public benefit corporation exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(a) and described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Code.
