Social movements and transformative social change begin, humbly or heroically, with embodiment.

Seeing the promise and possibility of a new or renewed norm, perspective or way of being — and living in a way that awakens this reality. This embodiment can take many forms: renewal, resistance or a refusal to continue to perpetuate systems that are rooted in injustice.

These acts and actions are needed now more than ever. The challenges we face are increasing in complexity, harm and urgency — arising at the intersections of intensifying colonial violence, xenophobia, misogyny (a violence that disproportionately impacts trans women, Indigenous women and women of colour), and climate crises. And we’re low on time.

So we’re asking…

How might we manifest alternatives to the injustices of our current systems?

How might we support one another in realizing these alternatives?
