EmpowR Co-Creator Team 2022
EmpowR co-creators are facilitators, educators, health practitioners, artists, change makers, activists, and a growing community of people who are committed to building healing, anti-racist culture.
Our work is informed by our lived experiences, professional backgrounds, personal healing and transformation journeys, educational pathways, and how we communicate and share knowledge and wisdom.
With deep gratitude and reverence we acknowledge many visionary culture builders, change makers, activists, and thought leaders who inform our work. As a part of a movement building for transformative justice and collective liberation, we are committed to learning from and moving the work forward of many teachers, including:
adrienne maree brown, Resmaa Menakem, Sherri Mitchell (She Who Brings the Light), Layla F Saad, Tema Okun, Kimberle Crenshaw, Grace Lee Boggs, Norma Wong, Jean Houston, Joanna Macy, Pat McCabe (Woman Stands Shining), Brene Brown, Tara Brach, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Kimberly Latrice Jones, Heather McGhee, Sonya Renee Taylor…
BEING our whole selves in all expressions. Being in relationship with people committed to the shared vision of healing the heart of humanity who align with the principles of transformative justice. We are committed to presence in our wholeness and self examination of our strengths, limitations, boundaries, words, and actions.
PRACTICING antiracism, anti-oppression, decolonization, culture building, and embodiment of our whole selves into all areas of our lives. We hold ourselves personally accountable to intentional cycles of healing, unlearning, relearning, and responsibility for the impacts of our behavior.
WEAVING connection, relationships, opportunities, solutions, networks, and reparations in community. We grow and synergize our different webs and threads to weave more people into the web of interdependent relationships and engage in personal, organizational, and cultural transformation.
WORKING together as a part of the EmpowR community, building bridges for collaborative opportunities and developing skills to strengthen our commitments to transformative justice. We are committed to healing wounds of personal, institutional, intergenerational, and historical trauma.
