ENGAGE

Some ways we can engage in work


Find ways to work outside of colonial, patriarchal, and supremacist structures and systems
---
Discover ways to uncover deeply-entrenched barriers and understanding where to go from there

---

Reclaim old, and create new spaces where everyone is given the chance to truly thrive


Some more familiar words you’re probably looking for are: facilitation, project management, design thinking, change work, and consultation.


Some familiar, and perhaps not-so-familiar tools we can explore the work will be through systems mapping and systems design, workflow and process creation, anti-oppression and equity policy audits, operations audits, new process and policy implementation, etc.


Someday, I hope to offer mediation for community accountability, and guidance in transformative and restorative justice. I’d also love to one day be involved in community gardening initiatives, working alongside others to rebuild our relationship with the land.

Where I’m directing my energy right now


  • As Board Treasurer at Kapisanan Philippine Centre, rebuilding the organization’s foundation, decentralizing power, and nurturing a culture of empathy. Read more about my work by clicking this link.


  • Preparing to launch a series of Conversational Filipino language classes, so that Filipinx youth in the diaspora can reclaim what was taken away by the inter-generational trauma of assimilation. Learn more by visiting atingkultura.com


  • As a peer advisor for a 2SLGBTQ+ organization in York Region, spurring them to find ways to effectively reach underrepresented groups, and providing insights into non-Western queer and trans perspectives. I’ll be presenting a session on Filipino/a/x Gender and Sexuality at home and in the diaspora as part of both Pride and Philippine Independence Day celebrations this June (2021).


And in general, existing in and contributing to communities that prioritize and facilitate decolonization, transformation, healing, and liberation. If this is something you’re looking for as well, reach out and I will gladly connect you to these wonderful spaces!
