About To Tell you the Truth

Beloved Community:

To tell you the Truth combines Media Literacy, Multi-Media Production and Truth Telling as we work together toward healing and liberation through beauty. The Truth and Healing Blog Project is a project of To tell you the Truth. In the past year To tell you the Truth’s work has included working with mamaz, community caregivers and femmez to begin to create and vision some projects that will support our truth-telling and liberation!

You can learn more about the Permission Perform a multi-meida project for m/others (self-identified single, teen and welfare m/others)  by clicking on the page Permission Perform Tab!

As the founder of To tell you the Truth, I am currently working on projects that come from my own identity base. I believe that as we begin to heal and understand ourselves we create the foundation for how we will create impact and healing for our families, communities and, ultimately, the world.

I committed to working on projects that are based on my own (mestizaje-mayan/femme-diva/radical-border-crossing/displaced-immigrant-goddess-adoptee/single-teen-welfare-queen-mama/spanglish-speaking/queer-as-hell/academically-impacted/lived-experience-learned) identity. These intersections are vital to the truth-telling perspectives that I work from and they inform the spaces that I get to create, learn from, and build with, various movements, individuals and organizations.

The Truth and Healing Blog Project serves as a space where I will share with you my personal truths…I believe this is an important part of engaging with and embodying the work  and values that To tell you the Truth stands.  In other words, this is a way to walk the talk because I truly do believe that we must tell our truths to live, to heal and to empower ourselves.

As you will see, I am focusing part of my personal contribution here to document my adoption journey and am so proud to share this spiritual path to re-discovery and re-claiming with you. Thank you for beginning this walk with me.

Also please check back in here for ways to learn more about To tell you the Truth, it’s multiple ongoing projects and ways you can plug and support the work!

I look forward to this journey with you.  All praises to the spirit that leads us and protects us.
