Who am I?
Lead of the Cultural Awareness Team. I am bi-vocational - I help people buy and sell houses and I work to dismantle white supremacy out of myself and the Lutheran Church.
I want MyJ to be a place where BIPOC folks can bring their whole, unapologetic selves. I understand that at past MYLE events there were microaggressions and white leaders did not appear equipped to navigate these situations - that some white folks were not aware of how their whiteness affected situations and didn’t necessarily understand cultural differences. We want to help people do better so that everyone can have a better experience.
One Favorite thing to look forward to:
“We all do better when we all do better.” Paul Wellstone
