Dylan Wilder Quinn (they/he/she)
looks to connect deeply with everyone who wants to create a world based in justice and connection that we know is possible. They run trans mentorship programs and groups that focus on building resilience, connection, and self-determination in trans individuals, but have found that advocating for trans people to cisgender people is a critical part of this work. Dylan's combination of life experiences as a childhood abuse survivor and holding both oppressed (trans, nonbinary, disabled, poor, socialized female, living with PTSD) and oppressor identities (white, masculine-perceived) informs their liberation work with people across many different identities, focusing first on trauma healing, surviving, and thriving. They believe that shame and blame are not helpful strategies to grow social justice movements, and that connection and closeness are necessary to see oppression crumble.
Jennie Pearl (she/her)
is an anti-oppression facilitator, yoga teacher, and bodyworker. She is committed to bridging the gap between social justice and healing work. Through deep inquiry and presence, Jennie is continually curious about how folx who hold privileged identities can begin to actually hold more complexity. She works with other cisgender people and white folx to build resilency and community. She’s dedicated to reimagining a world where we see each other’s humanity, repair when we cause harm, and build skills for long-term connection. She founded and facilitates Wake Up: a group for white-identified people who want to unlearn their racism, unpack their privilege, and untangle white supremacy from the inside out. She believes deep, inner work is a necessary, yet often overlooked aspect of the work we need to engage in order to dismantle overwhelming systems of oppression.
