Roots of my work / Other causes to know & support
I will be continuously adding to this list of organizations that I see achieving the better world that we deserve through explicit activism in their communities. Many of them are able to sustain their work largely through mutual aid and donations. Most are based in Philadelphia and Dallas, my two homes. This root network grows as I grow, and learn about more organizations in relation to my own practice and personal interests. If you like what I've been doing, there is a good chance that you'll get excited about these sources too. Please know about these movers and creators with the same focus that you've given me. Thanks!
Artists and Activists
Educators for justice, art tutorials, and other professional resources
Below, when I finally remember to add them, are some texts that have been a big part of my own growth as arts educator. Some are more pointed guides on introducing racial justice and anti-bias in the classroom, and some are just good reading in any context. And still some are invaluable art/puppetry tutorials from my own mentors.
