Who We Are:We are a collective of social workers, sex workers, sexy workers, artists, advocates, and educators. All of our intersecting social identities combined with our shared resilience and struggle brought us together to resist against oppression with joy. Together, we do what we love most which is sharing our passion in anti-oppression practices with you by co-creating deeper awareness and more intentional action.We embody practices from transformative justice, trauma-informed & decolonized mental health, disability justice, community organizing, human development, inclusive arts, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. These diverse lenses are centered on curiosity and compassion so that we can be fully present when we engage in the learning process with you. We do not just talk about curiosity and compassion; we be about it.
