This includes our capacity to grow stronger through artistic, economic, environmental, and traditional healing methods. Inspired by the words of Gloria Anzaldua, we believe that as “We Change Ourselves, We Change the World” and we are working hard to create a Vibrant Community that extends through each of us and supports all our communities in shining.
