Josina Manu Maltzman (all pronouns welcome) is a writer by passion, carpenter by trade, and a rabble-rouser by everything else. Jo loves to build: structures, stories, movements. Josina believes in personal narratives as tools for change, and that storytelling helps us to understand our world better.

Susan Raffo (she/her) is a writer, cultural worker and bodyworker who does much of her work through the Healing Histories Project, a national project, as well as locally as a core group member of REP, a Black-led network showing up to support others in moments of crisis or urgency, with care and respect for the full dignity and autonomy of those in crisis. Raffo is the author of Queerly Classed (1997), Restricted Access (1999), and Liberated to the Bone (forthcoming AK Press: 2022). You can find her writing and other work at www.susanraffo.com.

Miré Regulus is a mover, writer, director, performance artist & community builder.  She works the ‘transformative intersection’ using non-linear, rich, poetical prose; through where her work is sited/sighted; and explorations in how body/movement/gesture hold what we know. The anchoring tenets of her work are: for the audience to leave asking different questions than when they arrived and the call, “i belong everywhere.”
