Hosted by Helene Lesterlin

From a rooted sense of place and ancestry, with a guiding vision of racial justice and mutual aid, Jordan discusses their perspective on place, history, and social change-making. We note the mixed and turbulent emotions that springtime can bring, and imagine new ways of people working collaboratively, recognizing that the structures we are living with today were built for hierarchy and injustice. Do you work within those structures? Or do you build something entirely new?

Jordan Alexander Williams (they/them) is a queer Hoodoo, earth tender and living ancestor. Jordan trusts that revolutionary leadership manifests through dancing in the moon and sunlight, getting our hands in the soil, working cooperatively and caring for one another, prioritizing those who are most impacted by interlocking systems of oppression, and remembering the earth-sourced wisdom of our ancestors.

An organization we mention and where you can connect with Jordan: Rise Up Kingston.
