We unlock, provoke, facilitate, and collaboratively re-imagine equitable impacts

We focus on five areas.​

Changing
Oppressive
Systems

We work with partners to eliminate oppressive systems. Systems shape the unifying whole of multiple and interlocking beliefs, policies, regulations, practices, and cultural norms. Our work is to illuminate and weaken unjust systems while collaboratively developing alternatives to replace the subjugating practices.

Mitigating
Economic
Disparities

We need more financial resources dedicated to disenfranchised communities. There is too much economic abundance in this world for the level of resource scarcity consistently and historically normalized in Black, Indigenous, and systematically dispossessed communities. We can be better.

Elevating
Visibility
and Truths

We facilitate change by amplifying the voices of those silenced and othered by dominant narratives crafted to dehumanize, diminish, subjugate, or erase.

Stewarding
Sustainable
Environments

We ally with those dedicated to cultivating and protecting the earth and our social environments.

Bolstering
Leaders with
Bold Visions

On occasion, we work with individuals with bold visions and broad spheres of influence, seeking strategy, project management, honesty, and reminders of who they are and what they have the potential to become.

We believe in transformation.

We believe that everyone should be able to live free from systematized biases and structural oppression. We approach this work through a combination of head and heart modalities. Our ultimate goal is to transform how we are with ourselves and others—the “being.”
