Today’s converging social and ecological crises are the result of centuries of broken relationships produced by systems of oppression. The fundamental sense of separation and “othering” endemic to systems of capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy is collapsing under the weight of its dysfunction.
Because we understand the roots of these crises to be fundamentally relational in nature, our work centers on nurturing and strengthening the relational tissue within our communities, organizations and movements for justice and liberation.
We focus on supporting various theories of change by building a broad community of interest, a deep community of practice, and compelling trajectories of trainings that help individuals, organizations and movements strengthen their relational capacity.
All of these efforts are in support of building a tradition of relational practice grounded in our framework, CourageRISE.
