Embodying Solidarity on the Journey to Justice

I am humbled to join share stages and platforms with some amazing activists, thought leaders, Olympians, and politicians (yes, them too) who also pursue Embodied Solidarity rooted in a robust understanding of human dignity.  Here are some recent events that I hope will stir your soul and move you to never make peace with oppression in the places where your heart bleeds for justice!
