One thought on “been awhile. some reflections from past year and so.”

  1. Hello Barak,

    My name is Mauricio Tafur Salgado and among other things, I am blessed to know of your work. I come to you through the word of Carmen Morgan. I am also blessed to be working with her through artEquity. She recommended that I reach out to you to see if we could chat about a convening I am co-organizing. It is our hope to organize a gathering of folk to envision an equitable and inclusive training model that decenters white-ableist-patriarchal supremacy. Our hope is to organize this convening for the summer of 2019. Would you mind if we connected to see if you’d be interested in joining our effort? Warmly,
    Mauricio
