Nurturing the Culture Shift Needed to Prevent and End Violence
How We Do It
The key to ending Gender-, Sexual-, Ethnic-, Racial-, and Other Forms of Discrimination-based Violence is Personal Empowerment Tempered with Empathy.
When we address personal and generational trauma and insecurities through a culturally sensitive and informed lens, our clients feel listened to, understood, and become more open to new models of intimate, communal, and global engagement.
Nurture Individuals' inner strength, self-worth, and self-confidence through compassion and empathy.
Community & Inclusion
Increase intracommunity support and encourage intercommunity engagement.
Educate Community Leaders in critical thinking, empowerment, openness, and empathy and amplify their influence.
Model new, more inclusive culturally relevant traditions that can replace old patterns of intolerance and subjugation.
