I find that working within an anti-oppression framework is a great foundation for keeping my mind, body, heart and spirit healthy. Living in a world-especially a country where people are constantly being ostracized, harassed, shamed, dehumanized and oppressed can be overwhelming when you are in struggle for liberation.
Using an anti-oppression framework, allows me to understand my own powers and privileges and recognize how not to be oppressive to other communities and people but rather be in solidarity and allyship with other movements and individuals. It allows me to be held accountable to my community and allow for change.
I also find healing by continuing my path to being a curander@. Following in the footsteps of my abuelita, she has taught me the power of faith and healing. Whether it's connecting with my ancestors, my present or the future--I know that I am surrounded by beautiful energy that comes from the earth and my people. This helps me find my center and live a healthy life.
