We need to have a level of dystopian consideration. Certain climate realties are no longer wild imagining, they are happening, and they are coming. ( game of throne watchers? winter is here, and it’s balmy) Change is coming - what do we need to imagine as we prepare for it? How do we prepare the children in our lives to be Visionaries? And to love nature even when the changes are frightening and incomprehensible? To be abundant when what we consider valuable is shifting from gold to collard greens? How do we experience our beauty and humanity in every condition? #emergentstrategy #shapingchange #changingworlds @adriennemareenrown #fractuals #adapt# winter #queernature #diversify
ACM was beyond humbled to experience the wisdom of @talilalewis as they explained the deeply embedded intersections of racism and ableism. “Stolen Bodies; Criminalized Minds and Diagnosed Dissent” happened at the Longmore Institute on Disability at SFSU. Check out their work with HEARD and more on their website www.talilalewis.com . . . Image Description: TL Lewis , Black, disabled queer is standing behind a podium giving a lecture. To the left a white interpreter signs ASL. To the left of them a black screen with white writing shows TL’s shortened definition of ableism : “ A system that places value on peoples bodies and minds based on societally constructed notions of normalcy, intelligence, and excellence. These societally constructed notions of normalcy, intelligence, and excellence are deeply rooted in eugenics, anti-Blackness, and capitalism“ . . . #dismantlewhitesupremacy #ableism #racism #disabilityjustice #intersectionality #accesscentered #anticapitalism #accomplices #interdependence #emergentstrategy #socialjustice
We tend to think our lives happen in silos, when in reality, nothing we do gets done alone. There are always support systems in place helping us, whether we recognize them or not. The connections, interactions and influences you create are complex, powerful and so much more important than the final outcome for which you are striving. Find your community, nurture it, and watch the magic happen.

Sometimes a book really does hit you at the right time.

It’s 2040. Redistribution of wealth is mandatory. Salary’s can not exceed 100k. Reparations to people of colour (BIPOC) continue. Life saving universal health care is for everyone. Oceans and air are cleaner than in the last 500 years. 80% of country’s now have female identifying leaders who don’t uphold the patriarchy and capitalism. Homelessness is of the past. Animals are granted basic human rights and can no longer be owned or killed without consequences. The last zoo on the planet has closed... These are headlines for the future, inspired by #emergentstrategy and the vegan vanguard podcast. this isssa wave!
ACM believes in interdependence, collective liberation and wellbeing. We know that our wellbeing is tied with yours and that the wellness of our collective relies on dismantling the systems of oppression that are disconnecting all of our bodyminds, replacing our ancient wisdoms with shame and doubt, with dissociation. We are healing informed, collectively healing the historical, generational, social, and individual trauma that affects so many of us, creating cycles of chronic emotional and physical pain. We believe in accomplices, knowing that we are not free until ALL of us are free, until we dismantle white supremacy, capitalism, heteropatriarchy, and ableism. . . . Text reads: “we are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all in directly.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (image by Ari Moore— jewel tone writing on a white background) . . . #antiracist #anticapitalism #dismantlewhitefeminism #accesscenteredmovement #accesscenteredyoga #disabilityjustice #interdependence#fatliberation #emergentstrategy #collectivewellness #accesscentered #accesscenteredmagic #accesscentereddance #queer #radical #femme #disabled #movement #dance #yoga #trauma #traumainformed #healinginformed #healing #wellness #ancientwisdom #bodypositive
