LIVE from Our 1st Birthday Party (with Jillian White, Alexis Francisco, Sumitra Rajkumar, & The Peace Poets)

Welcome to our first-ever LIVE SHOW, coming at you from our first birthday party! We are joined by Kate Werning, Jillian White, Sumitra Rajkumar (of episode 12), Alexis Francisco (of episode 33), The Peace Poets (of episode 23) with Dr. Drum, and 150 of our celebrating friends in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

We enjoyed powerful music with The Peace Poets and Dr. Drum, talked about how healing is moving for us in our organizing work, and celebrated the amazing things this broader community has moved in the world this past year.

We also talked about our dreams to continue this powerful project, including Jillian joining the team as our Producer, and bringing in movement partners as regular correspondents to share the voice and content curation on the show.

We need a lot of help to make that sustainable and possible. Can you help us get there?
