Our Vision...

Our vision is for a movement centering the healing and wellbeing of Black, Queer and Trans people is collectively held and we choose to prioritize investing our energies to create nourishing communities and spaces of thriving, ease, abundance and multi-generational healing. We officially launched this project on September 20, 2023 and the storefront space to house that vision opened February 9, 2024. 

Community Priorities

 Black folk are worthy of rest, ease, healing and liberation. Queer and Trans folk are worthy of rest, ease, healing and liberation. There are too few safe harbors for people to experience reconnecting to the Divine and their own immeasurable potential for being and building a world where we can all thrive. Black Bird Rising community is an invitation for us individually and collectively to create and find pathways beyond survival and reap our harvest of abundance and multi-generational healing.
