COMMUNITY PROJECTS

Yoga is Dead merchandise

  • Yoga is Dead podcast is a project by Tejal Patel and Jesal Parikh, two Indian-American yoga teachers addressing cultural appropriation, commodification, power, and privilege in the yoga industry. I've been volunteering with them on transcription editing since their launch, and am now supporting with shipping out merchandise. If you want to support these amazing activists and leaders, please purchase a tote bag, t-shirt, or stickers and I'll be the one who's writing the thank you note and shipping out your products with love <3

 

Sacred Aromatherapy

  • Shadia Marji of Urban Well is a radical educator, social worker, trauma therapist, clinical aromatherapist, Reiki teacher, and holistic healing practitioner whose business supports people to connect to their inner healer through a variety of modalities. I've been working with her to support the administration, marketing, and communications aspect of Urban Well since September 2019. We recently launched an online shop that sells the highest grade medicinal aromatherapy essences. Profits go toward supporting Shadia's community work in justice-informed healing for BIPOC organizers. Please consider purchasing a product from the site or buying a gift card for someone you love! 

 

Third Root Community Health Center

  • Third Root is a multiracial, intergenerational worker-owned cooperative that offers accessible acupuncture, yoga, massage, and herbal education courses through an anti-oppression lens, and where I work as an administrator. We're currently offering all classes and workshops to Black folks for free, ramping up ASL and other language access, and providing herbal care kits to formerly incarcerated LGBTQ youth. Please join me in donating to Third Root's fundraiser to sustain these free offerings while continuing to pay workers a fair wage.
