Personal pronouns: They, them, theirs

Hello! My peoples are indigenous from Northern Mexico in the Chiuahuah desert and Southern New Mexico, on my dads side, and my peoples are anglo from Germany and Ireland on my moms side.  I grew up in Los Angeles, California. My cultural work is bicoastal and south western.  Currently I am supporting youth climate strikers in New York City to grow their political education and strategy post Global Climate Strikes in September 2019. 

Generally, I work across New York State to support local anti-fracking fights, divestment and statewide Green New Deal efforts. I am a cultural organizer and I use the arts to help movements and communities to tell their own stories in unique and commanding voices, whether visually or embodied.
