they/them/theirs,

Sophia is a Southern based fat, Black, queer with 11 years of experience working in the nonprofit field...

We honor our co-founding Roots, Cheyenne Wyzzard-Jones and Rosy Dougé-Charles for their invaluable contributions to building this cherished project.

           Very talented, professional and inspiring people! Just a joy

to spend time with them- fantastic job of creating

a safe learning community with loving spirit!

          I feel very profoundly how rare it is to be in a space where I'm able to truly hear and feel what everyone else is saying,

as well as feel heard myself. I feel that this has helped

me find the understanding and direction I was hoping for. 

"Wow! Thank you so much for facilitating and holding the space for teaching and sharing with all of us. You are engaging and compassionate, allowing us to feel, learn from our mistakes, and learn about the important steps to take to
dismantle racism."
