“We want great leaders – who love the people enough and respect the people enough to be unbought, unbound, unafraid and unintimidated to tell the truth.” ~Dr Cornel West Hi! I'm Cathy, a San Francisco Bay Area critical researcher and cultural worker. Thanks for dropping by my Ko-fi page! I've been focused for 4 years researching, developing, testing, and implementing creative content and modes of change that can promote and proliferate democratic practices between us as individuals. I've been doing the work on my own dime. Why? Because healthy democratic human relations and cultures are also healthiest for mother nature, and protecting the health of the planet and its creatures couldn't be more urgently needed. Here on fee-free Ko-fi, you can support the on-going original field research, the creation of relational democracy content, and democratic cultural work projects. The focus is power: understanding what it is and how it functions, how power is stolen in practices, how to share power, how to create new sources of power, and ultimately, how to balance the power between us. Share your power to keep RDP moving forward building relationally democratic cultural infrastructure from the ground up!
