This event is hosted by the Wild Ivy Social Justice Network, a project of the Wildflower Alliance, and facilitated by our Benefits Connector, Zoe. Our goals as a team are to increase voice, choice, access, and personal and collective power for those who experience life-interrupting emotional distress and other challenges, and who’ve faced additional barriers due to marginalization. We do so through building bridges, raising awareness, and intentionally seeking to undo racism, ableism, heterosexism, transphobia, and other forms of systemic oppression. In challenging cultural beliefs and working towards structural pathways into power for our communities, we seek to remove obstacles to self-determination and offer soil for the development of life potential.
