Wielding the Force: The Science of Social Justice
"Decolonization requires acknowledging. that your needs and desires should never come at the expense of another’s life energy. It is being honest that you have been spoiled by a machine that is not feeding you freedom but feeding you the milk of pain. "
- Nayyirah Waheed
"Radical imagination is reenvisioning your existence on this land without the inherited privileges of conquest and empire. It is accepting the fact of a meaningful prior Indigenous presence, and taking action to support struggles not only of social and economic justice, but political justice..."

The Living Room Project
"As a community health collective offering harm reductionist and trauma-informed services, honoring your self-determination and consent is a part of everything we do, from the moment you enter our doorway to the time you make your next appointment."

"Kindred Collective believes not only in collective grief, but also in collective resiliency and resistance"
"[We] identify a need to be able to respond to the increased state of burnout and depression in our movements; systematic loss of our communities’ healing traditions; the isolation and stigmatization of healers, and the increased privatization of our land, medicine and natural resources that has caused us to rely on state or private models we do not trust and that do not serve us."
Oakland, California -
"The Living Room Project is an accessible healing and community space for queer and trans people of color (qtpoc) and our allies."

Calling in and out
Woman of Color
"We are not born women of color. We become women of color. In order to become women of color, we would need to become fluent in each others’ histories, to resist and unlearn an impulse to claim first oppression, most-devastating oppression, one-of-a-kind oppression, defying comparison oppression. We would have to unlearn an impulse that allows mythologies about each other to replace knowing about one another. We would need to cultivate a way of knowing in which we direct our social, cultural, psychic, and spiritually marked attention on each other. We cannot afford to cease yearning for each others’ company."
- M. Jacqui Alexander
"My vision is one of healthy, sustainable communities that recognize human inter-connectedness with and inter-dependence on each other as well as the other species of the planet; where individual wellbeing is understood to be crucial to that of the community and community wellbeing is crucial to that of the individual; where relationships among communities contribute to globalized wellbeing"
