The

What is grief 2 action?

The Grief to Action Camp is a semi-mobile camp where African Heritage people and other identified PotGM (People of the Global Majority) can come shelter in place and grieve with support.

Grief is an integral part of the human experience, and all of humanity deserves a place for their grief and rage. We are starting with the most marginalized.

 

After our strong emotions are released, folks can notice the wisdom that comes out of grief and out of rage, especially while being held and supported by African Heritage people and other allies.

Healing ourselves is healing the world

Born and raised in the Northwest by brilliant Black womxn, BJ's leadership is shaped by legacies of Black love, resistance, and by-any-means-necessary survival. BJ began training and facilitating a decade ago with Generation Waking Up, and has since trained thousands of leaders to bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world. Early in their craft they co-founded Young Womxn's Leadership, Summer of Solutions Seattle, and became a trainer under Joanna Macy and The Work That Reconnects. Today BJ is a member of The Wildfire Project, a recent co-director of Irresistible Podcast, and an independent facilitator for movement groups throughout the US such as Sunrise, Color of Change, National Bail Out, Movement Alliance Project, Amazon Employees for Climate Justice, 350, Momentum, and Rainforest Action Network. 10 years of facilitation and 36 years inside a queer&trans Black body have elicited keen sight, grounded presence, and a tendency toward blessed unrest.
