Partnering in Whole Community – Youth Passageways Solidarity Partners

“Spirit always invests in relationships first in order to make the changes needed…Social will is what lifts the world.” – Orland Bishop

At Youth Passageways, as we seek to build a vibrant, resilient network of partners regenerating healthy passages for all youth in mature adulthood, we recognize that part of our work as a growing, deepening community is engaging with money as a healing force for change. These are hard times. For many of our partners, these have been hard times for generations. The work we are doing is vitally important, but often under-resourced. In order to ensure that all young people receive the care, healing, support, and resources they need to bring forth their unique gifts in service to their communities, we must support and uplift each other in order to. We especially see the responsibility of our network to support our Black, and Indigenous, and trans/nonbinary kin throughout the globe, given the disproportionate impacts of violence and oppression affecting these communities.

Please donate today to one or more of the amazing Solidarity Partners listed below. Contact darcy (at)youthpassageways.org if you would like more information on this initiative and how to get involved.

Rites of Decolonization, a podcast on the role of ritual in decolonization centered on People(s) of the Global Majority.

This podcast is fruit from seeds sown in conjunction with Youth Passageways, and the culture-bearer work of Kathara Pilipino Indigenous Arts Society. The intention of this podcast is to expand awareness of the global efforts to renew initiatory rites of passage to societies around the world that have been historically disrupted from their Indigenous practices. Bridging the divide between the people of their homelands and the diaspora, this is an emergent strategy to make use of the pandemic to give rise to a future that has understood the past well enough not to perpetuate its harms. With analysis we make movement towards holding change with mutual aid, reparations grounded in ceremony.

What’s Needed?

The Rites of Decolonization team is currently looking for financial support to offset the cost of annual podcast hosting as well as those interested in working on branding artwork for the series. If interested contact Sobey Wing HERE.
