Our Purpose is to connect children and families with those committed to making positive change for their communities and for humanity.
Our vision is to provide a platform of spiritual, emotional, and familial healing.
Our mission is to create and facilitate workshops and resources that are intended to cultivate critical thought and positive behavior within and on behalf of socially marginalized people and communities.
The major themes in my advocacy and artistic endeavors are empathy, accountability, and consistency. My experiences as a survivor of adverse personal circumstances, as a person of color, and as a woman in a society where the experiences of those like me are frequently marginalized, has given rise within me to an empathetic consciousness.
I have throughout my life and in my work empathized with those who are survivors of trauma, who have been victimized or negatively impacted by adverse social and personal circumstances, and who strive from those positions to better themselves to make a positive contribution to others.
My experiences as one who has often been disappointed by people in positions of authority, and organizations who are supposed to be constituted to protect and support those who have such challenges, have highlighted for me the centrality of the idea of accountability. My sense of accountability is at one level personal. In that I have a commitment to hold myself accountable for being true to myself and others in word and deed. It is also collective and social; in that I strive to demonstrate in the work I do for others, and the statements I make on behalf of the causes I support to embody the idea that I can be held accountable for following through and standing by those in my constituency.
Connected to this concept of accountability is the necessity for consistency. Though I will always maintain an evolving list of activities and programs, there has always been and always will be a central core to these that speaks to who I have been, and who I am, and who I am becoming. Grounded in core principles about ethics, spirituality, and the place of truth and knowledge; drawn from the traditions of my indigenous and African ancestors, and from the family and friends and those who are part of my personal support network. I strive to be and remain, a person of significance and a person of principle for God, for my people, and for humanity. My documentary films, literary work, artistry, workshops, nonprofit work, and presentations all bear the imprint of these core values which animate and sustain me as I seek to manifest the creative muse that God placed in my spiritual care. All through which I shall make a difference in the world.
