EmpowR Vermont Sunburst
“Thank you for taking the time to teach me and others in community about how to start deconstructing white supremacy culture within ourselves. Our weaving retreat helped me see how to move beyond white guilt and shame and to understand that these systems are designed to erase the ancestral culture of white bodied people too. And while it’s not easy to talk about these things, it’s important because it helps us find our voices to advocate for change.”
