My current personal life mission is to cultivate capacity for social change, in particular for nonhuman animals. I bring together communities to heal emotionally, spiritually, physically, and socially to help us be more loving, compassionate, and sustainable social change activists. My work includes fundraising, activist development, and spiritual facilitation. See my resume for some of my history.
As of May of 2020, here are some of the things I’m doing with my life
I have been training for a triathlon, now canceled because of the COVID 19 pandemic, and that’s been great. I am going to continue to train since I appreciate how it feels to move my body and feel healthy. I am ahead of schedule with my running. I have been biking less (there aren’t many places to go because of the pandemic), but I have enjoyed riding my new road bike. I have spent more time during the pandemic away from screens, meditating, and walking. I am grateful for the privilege I have.
I continue to host monthly Our Wellness and Liberation gatherings which are now online. I had been considering planning another retreat, and now I’m glad it wasn’t going forward since we would have canceled it because of the pandemic.
I have been engaged in a variety of equity and animal advocacy projects, like leading the Equity Advisory Committee for the Animal Rights National Conference. The conference will be online this year, and the committee will not have a lot to do this year. I will also lead the committee for the 2021 conference. I attended and very much appreciated the Encompass Foundational Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summit in March and participate in their Global Majority Caucus.
For work, I am coaching and training small organizations on individual donor fundraising with GiveMN. I left BiteSquad and Seed Cafe a few months ago.
