NOUN

  • one who brings conversations to life
  • one who gives inspiration, encouragement, or renewed vigor to unlikely partners in dialogue

We are a team of educators, activists, healers, artists, connectors, and neighbors committed to seeing the invisible, hearing the voiceless, and creating spaces for social change.  As animators, we vitalize conversations that move unlikely community partners from fear and apathy to prophetic service.
