Hi Leah,

Thank you so much for taking time to read our idea. The character limits kept me REALLY concise. There wasn't space to elaborate on the threads that inform our strategies. In no particular order and I am sure I will leave something out: Interfaith dialog for social justice, Sandra Bloom's Sanctuary model, trauma informed practice, ecological systems theory, community based participatory action research, Laura Porter and Robert Anda's Building Self Healing Communities model (Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences, Resilience), Nancy Folbre's work in economics, Howard and Brian Stevenson's work on racial literacy and the justice system, Sherri Mitchel's work Sacred Instructions, the Highlander Center's work on nonviolent social change, reproductive justice (& POPULAR EDUCATION!!! I knew I would leave something out, one of the elemental foundations at that!)

And then there's just the simple fact that I am in love with this tiny corner of the earth, where I was born and raised and returned to with my son ten years ago, and the people who make it home.

I am looking forward to connecting more with your team!
