I hold a vision of radical transformation that is rooted in the reclamation of life’s sacredness. As we disrupt the false binaries of the dominant narrative, we will more clearly understand that true community and individual self-determination require one another. I am working to support marginalized communities by empowering reclamation of the shared humanity that systemic injustice has sought to deny. By sharing our stories, we can receive the healing medicine we need to undermine the colonial paradigm of top-down, extractive, and exploitative power structures. Global solidarity, mutual aid, and collective action are the foundation of a just and sustainable future, but they all begin with authentic relationships. As we dismantle walls, we will repurpose those bricks to build bridges.
As a professional chef, sacred activist, and avid Deadhead, I look forward to the days when all people can gather round the fire to break bread, live free, and listen to the music play.
