I am a first generation, queer, Quiskeyana who believes in people and our power to shape our lives, heal and create new possibilities. I build relationships that change this world so that Black and Brown people, particularly poor Black and Brown people, take back was has been taken from us, (re)claim our history and shape our own lives without the intervention of racist and oppressive systems.
My current organizing is as a racial equity and liberation healer all over the world and in the gatherings I host in my hometown of Washington Heights that center ancestral wisdom, racial equity, healing and building community.
This is my public record. An account. I am here, we all are, and I get to have an account of my dreams, despairs, joys and love.
