REVOLUTIONARY GIRLS

Partnering with local schools and non-profit organizations in the Puna District of Hawai’i County, we are creating a curriculum that features 24 historical and mythological women whose lives, legends, and legacies embody empowerment, resilience, and emotional intelligence that can embolden marginalized adolescent girls to become socially aware revolutionary leaders.

QUEER SPIRITUALITY RESOURCES

Just as women’s roles in the development of spiritual traditions have often been overlooked, the stories of queer people’s contributions to faith communities remain largely untold. We are telling these stories and are helping to create truly affirming and inclusive communities of faith.

HOLY WOMEN ICONS OF GRIEF

This project is aimed at facilitating conversations about more expansive understandings of grief beyond conventional American practices, offering a corrective to the ways in which, in the West, grief has transformed into a capital enterprise that stifles holistic grieving practices and creates financial stress for the bereaved. We do this by telling the stories of grief goddesses and saints from 14 different cultural and religious traditions.
