Today on Mushroom Hour we have the incredible opportunity to speak with Integrated Land Enhancement found Leif Olson. A native of the western North Carolina mountains, Leif grew up with a deep sense of connection and appreciation for nature.  Early on this relationship was primarily through a creative and imaginative lens, but after over a decade of researching and working in ecology, chemistry, mycology, landscaping and sustainable agriculture he now works to study and improve the natural world with an interdisciplinary approach. After receiving a Bachelor's of Science in Ecology from University of California at Santa Cruz and a Master of Environmental Management in Ecotoxicology at Duke University, Leif spent the following years becoming versed in the rapidly emerging fields of applied mycology and soil biology.  Though it may be unbeknownst to many, we are currently living in a renaissance of knowledge for understanding the processes and interconnectivity of nature. What a great opportunity to learn from a hands-on expert about how we can leverage our emerging understanding of plants, fungi, microorganisms, nutrients, water and more to enhance the resiliency, fertility and productivity of our landscapes.

One of my favorite New Year's reviews is under the title of “Person” of the Year. In the past, I have singled out Chief Compliance Officers, Chief Ethics Officers, Prosecutors, and Whistleblowers.For 2021, the choice is obvious – the most important trend is the rise of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) programs. In second place, I would choose Supply Chain Management and Risks, given the importance of supply chain management in the post-pandemic world. In the end, ESG dominated the headlines and earned the annual recognition as the issue of the year.

This week we are rebroadcasting our interview with Donna Haraway, originally aired in August of 2019. Since her 1985 essay, “A Cyborg Manifesto,” scholar Donna Haraway has transformed how theorists, academics, and artists think about humans' deep and entangled relationships with technology, beyond-human kin, and each other. Through an ongoing practice of thoughtful and curious investigation, Donna continues to unravel the myth of human exceptionalism, the hyper individualism of capitalist culture and Western traditions, and the rigid binaries we so often construct between the self and others. Attending to the intersection of biology, culture and politics, Donna Haraway is a Distinguished Professor Emerita in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California Santa Cruz. She earned her PhD in Biology at Yale in 1972 and writes and teaches in science and technology studies, feminist theory, and multispecies studies. Haraway's most recent works include Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene; a feature-length film by Fabrizio Terravova, titled Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival; and Making Kin Not Population, a publication co-edited with Adele Clarke that addresses questions of human numbers, feminist anti-racist reproductive and environmental justice, and multispecies flourishing.

Tom Duncan, Head of Research and Investment Strategy for Cromwell Property Group joins Bold Founder Caleb Parker for the seventh episode of Season 6 to discuss Tom's recent publication in Insight Magazine, titled ‘Office 2025: The Next Evolutionary Cycle'. The two discuss how office demand is changing, thus creating a gap between supply & demand, and an abundance of misaligned stock, and what this means for commercial real estate investors. Tom shares how this moment in the market can seem scary, but that office evolution is nothing new, and we're now entering the age of Space-as-a-Service.  Caleb gives a shout out to Samantha McClary for her article on Bold in EG.

Timestamps [05:00] Tom gives a brief overview of Cromwell and the portfolio. Cromwell Property Group is an international investment manager with $8bn of assets split 50/50 between Europe and APAC. [06:00] What is the background on the research that led to the outcomes in the article ‘Office 2025: The Next Evolutionary Cycle'? The feature of the office was subject to such fierce debate in the industry and in the media more generally, they felt much of that debate was misinformed and subject to overly negative sentiment. Survey data shows that there are benefits for both employee and employer to utilising the office as a working environment.  Working patterns will change to accommodate office and home working, and where people end up working will be based on the tasks they need to complete.  There will be more incentivisation to get people back into the office. [11:00] Can you provide some context on the gap between supply and demand and where does Space-as-a-Service fit in? Employees and building occupiers now hold the power. Landlords should be viewing themselves as service providers to their customers, the occupiers, and this should lead to a physical evolution of the type of space that's provided.  [16:20] Your article quotes “[investors in real estate should] act with conviction to dispose of misalign stock and acquire product, which is, or can be aligned to future occupier demand”. Do Real Estate Investors not usually act with conviction? Real estate can be guilty of ‘herd mentality', meaning they follow the same patterns.  Acting with conviction might mean going against the grain or put themselves in an uncomfortable position based on the narrative at the time.  [18:40] What's your view on building from the ground up versus buying and repurpose? Much of the existing stock will need to be repositioned to make sure that it aligns with what occupiers of today want and occupies as tomorrow as well. Environmental factors mean it will be increasingly difficult to create new buildings from scratch, so repurposing an existing building will be much more environmentally friendly.  [23:30] How does Cromwell look at rolling out Space-as-a-Service across the portfolio? A tailored approach depending on offices, locations and market need.    [24:50] Quickfire round questions.

After identify stakeholders, the team used a tree diagram to describe methods and tools used in the clean up process.  After answering questions, they determined the root causes of their difficulty of clean up was mostly the machinery they used.  The team used hand-operated skimmers to chase the oil, they had to use dozens of hoses.  Set up and transportation was time-consuming and required many workers.  The team decided to completely reverse the system of clean up and since there was no funding, they had to create their own equipment with what they had on hand.  The new process and equipment exceeded the goals of the MYT team and provided many intangible benefits.

ESG, DEI, and 8 Other Business Trends for 2022 (Part 1)

Business Lunch

Play Episode Listen Later Jan 17, 2022 20:01


There are a number of trend-based marketing strategies you can implement to achieve profit breakthroughs in 2022.   In today's episode, host Roland Frasier gives us the inside scoop on a lot of cool things going on right now in the business world. He walks us through the first five today and will share the rest in an upcoming episode.    Listen in if you want to stay on top of both what's happening now and what's coming down the pike.   Trend #1: ESG   This is one you hear a lot about in the investment banking world. ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. There's a tremendous focus right now on sustainability and corporate responsibility to keep the environment healthy (E), doing social good (S), and building in protections against the companies doing bad things (G).   There are a lot of funds right now set up to do ESG investing. The more focused we are on being sustainable, environmentally-conscious, and socially responsible, the more we'll get business from these bigger companies focused on it. Consumers are demanding this too, so you're winning on both sides.   Ask yourself: what could I do in my business, or what business could I acquire to become more sustainable? Things like rethinking your supply chain, reducing your carbon footprint, and giving back environmentally. From a social perspective, what can I do to contribute? Give back to your local community or the world at large, or specific organizations like Black Lives Matter.   Trend #2: DEI    Yes, there are a lot of acronyms to keep track of. DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  From a diversity (D) standpoint, when it comes to the people working with us—at all levels of the business—we should be diverse both racially and socio-economically.    How can we get people of different genders, however they might identify, to get involved in the company so we can get different perspectives? How can we be friendly to the LGBTQ+ community? Not just people we're selling to, but people in management, in executive positions, on the board. Studies have shown that diverse companies are more profitable, come up with more ideas, and are more innovative.   The equity (E) part is how do we give people ownership and have stakeholders that are diverse? Stakeholders who will profit and be uplifted by their involvement and the things they contribute to the company.   Inclusion (I) is very broad. How are we going to be aware of all these different interests out there, and how can we serve them? What opportunities do we have in the company to bring these diverse viewpoints in and how can we facilitate this? There's a lot of money flowing to companies that are DEI-aware. This is a huge trend and theme in 2022, and will probably go for the rest of this decade.    Trend #3: The Great Resignation   There's a whole flow of people, mostly young people, leaving their jobs saying, “I'm not happy with where I am. I'm not happy with the progress I'm making, with the prospects I have of getting to do something profitable and fulfilling and socially responsible.” People want to contribute to the world, feel good, and take care of themselves.   The Great Resignation is creating real problems for businesses. The opportunity here to think about is: how do we serve all the people who are leaving the workforce and starting businesses for the first time? People want to be entrepreneurs and go into business for themselves.    Starting a business is really hard, so you're going to see people wanting to reenter the workforce, but in better jobs. We'll need career counselors, headhunters, people to help those who failed in businesses and have challenges, business coaches, career training, etc. Anything that will serve the significant portion of people who are working remotely.   Trend #4: Reallocating the Supply Chain   For the past two years, there's been a big challenge in getting goods. We're seeing huge inflation rates. A lot of it has to do with a catch-up period after production was reduced or completely stopped when the pandemic hit.   There are 96 cargo ships in the LA/Long Beach port right now backed up. This will be worked out, but will probably take a couple years. Big opportunity: how can I reallocate the supply chain?    A lot of companies that were acquiring supplies from overseas don't want to get blindsided again and will move some/all of their manufacturing to North America (Mexico or the U.S.). If you can look and find markets where labor and location is inexpensive, this will be profitable.   Trend #5: AI   A lot of humans are being replaced with AI (Artificial Intelligence) right now and this is only the beginning. There's a huge need for companies with the ability to integrate AI with humans. We have AI agencies where AI is writing campaign ads and copy, and it's coming out better than what the humans were writing. The AI is winning. We're hitting the point where computer intelligence is exceeding human beings.   Where's the profit here? Get involved in AI verticalizations. Be part of the companies that are providing AI solutions, AI integrations, helping companies integrate AI, training people to service and work the AI as an AI technician, displacement training to help the people being displaced by AI.    These are five of the biggest trends Roland believes will provide some very profitable opportunities in 2022 and beyond.

E.O. Wilson was sometimes called "the father of biodiversity," sometimes "a modern-day Darwin," and sometimes simply "Ant Man." His recent death was an enormous loss to the world of biology and environmentalism.  You'll hear him tell wonderful stories here, including one about how a childhood disability gave him a great advantage in his work. You'll also get to know two major figures in a related field: ethnobotany. Richard Schultes created the field with his groundbreaking studies in the Amazon, back in the 1940's & 50's. He studied the plants that the indigenous populations used for healing, in an effort to identify new molecules that could be used in modern medicine. Along the way, he discovered over 2,000 plants previously unknown to science. One of Schultes' proteges was Wade Davis, who furthered the work of ethnobotany, and today is a best-selling author of books about indigenous cultures around the world.

Daniel Turner, founder and Director of Power the Future, talks about their new report: “Crisis: The Man-Made Energy Shortfall Heading for America.”… After years of record low energy prices, Americans saw a reversal in 2020 with fully 20% of Americans unable to pay their energy bills. Jacki gives tips on how to save money in a time when energy prices are skyrocketing …A prestigious American political science journal publishes a paper by a University of Virginia professor calling for “authoritarian environmentalism,” to combat climate change, modeled after Covid policy, which gets scarier by the day: Jacki reports on new microchip for humans that tracks vax status “whether we like it or not,” in the words of its manufacturer…France's Macron says French citizens cannot buy or sell in the marketplace unless they are vaccinated, but assures that he will stop short of incarceration…Canada's Trudeau likewise referred to the unvaxxed as “taking up space” and asked whether they should be “tolerated.”… World population continues to grow, with the world's largest countries, like China, seeing the rapid expansion of fertility clinics. Jacki's takeaway: the growing world population will need more energy, not less, as the decade wears on… Then, Jacki praises the Wall Street Journal for calling out Zuckerberg for spending over $300 million to partially privatize the 2020 election operations - a practice that Texas and other jurisdictions are outlawing.

This week we are rebroadcasting our interview with Vijay Prashad, originally aired in February of 2021. Emboldened by the rapid development of technology, a cultural ethos of rugged individualism, globalization, and the monopolization of our media, the era of efficiency in the so-called Global North has significantly altered our communal symbiosis. For many, acts of service that would have once been fulfilled by neighbors and community have now been replaced by apps and gig workers, ultimately commodifying most of our social relations in one form or another. This week on the podcast, we are joined by guest Vijay Prashad to explore how societies take care of themselves, what true public action looks like in crisis, and how movements across the world have resisted the privatization of life and the devaluation of care that we have become accustomed to. Vijay Prashad is the Director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research, Chief Editor at LeftWord Books and Chief Correspondent for Globetrotter. His most recent book is Washington Bullets, just out from Monthly Review Press with a preface by Evo Morales Ayma. Music by Nathan Keck, Lizabett Russo, Sidi Touré, and Jon Yonts.

Consumer demand for transparency and sustainability of their food system is leading to more and more agrochemical restrictions to address concerns for pollinators, noenicitinoids, and drift. Additionally, ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investors are putting pressure on the chemical industry to improve their metrics. Pam Marrone, Founder and CEO of Marrone Bio Innovations outlines the market, status, and potential for biologicals in this excerpt from our 2020 Sustainable Ag Expo. Bringing a new pesticide to market can cost upwards of 300 million dollars and takes an average of 21 years. These challenges have big companies looking at new technologies like biologicals. Bringing a biological to market costs five to 10 million and can be accomplished in three to four years. Growers are seeing that using an integrated solution creates a better final product. Biologicals offer new modes of action, the ability to spray up until harvest, and short reentry times. Plus, they can allow growers to improve soil health and reduce greenhouse gasses.   References: 87: Developing New Winegrape Varieties   94: Effective Vineyard Spraying (Rebroadcast) 122: Preserving Agriculture Land to Combat Climate Change Pesticidal natural products – status and future potential SIP Certified Sustainable Ag Expo Tailgate | 1/14/2022 |  Salinity 101 - Science and Management of Increasing Salinity in a Drier Climate

This week we are rebroadcasting our interview with Tricia Hersey of the Nap Ministry, originally aired in June of 2020. With a historical analysis of slavery and plantation labor, this week's episode prompts us, at this critical time, to consider what is stolen from those among us who cannot rest under white supremacy and capitalism. In this incredibly rich offering, we speak with Tricia on the myths of grind culture, rest as resistance, and reclaiming our imaginative power through sleep. Capitalism and white supremacy have tricked us into believing that our self-worth is tied to our productivity. Tricia shares with us the revolutionary power of rest. Tricia Hersey is a Chicago native living in Atlanta with over 20 years of experience collaborating with communities as a performance artist, theater maker, spiritual director, and community organizer. She is the founder of The Nap Ministry, an organization that examines rest as a form of resistance by curating safe spaces for the community to rest via Collective Napping Experiences, immersive workshops and performance art installations. Her research interests include black liberation theology, womanism, somatics, and cultural trauma. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Public Health from Eastern Illinois University and a Master of Divinity from the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 12-31-21.TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of January 3, 2022.  This revised episode from January 2014 is part of a series this year of winter-related episodes. For this first week of 2022, we listen in on one Virginian's annual New Year's challenge to the laws of physics and chemistry—water-temperature physics and chemistry, that is.  Have a listen for about 35 seconds. SOUNDS AND VOICE - ~35 sec – “It's the New Year, on the shore of the New River. It's 22 degrees and perfect time for a swim. Happy New Year, everyone! Happy New Year! [Series of exclamations about the cold.] Ah, welcome to Antarctica.” You've been listening to Blacksburg resident Alan Moore during the 2014 version of his annual New Year's Day wade into the New River.  The watery welcome to that January 1st—unaided by a wet-suit—lasted only a few seconds, not as much because of the 22-degree air temperature as because of the 39-degree water temperature.  Water that cold can cause exhaustion or unconsciousness within 15 to 30 minutes, and even water at 60 or 70 degrees can be dangerously chilling over one to two hours, depending on a person's body size and other factors. Water's capacity to chill a human body is much greater than that of air at the same temperature, for two reasons.  First, liquids generally conduct heat more rapidly than gases, because liquids are denser (that is, the molecules are closer together).  And second, liquid water has chemical attractions between molecules that can absorb high amounts of energy, such as heat energy coming from a person's body.  These and other interactions among water, heat, and temperature are part of water's thermodynamics, and they exert a big influence on weather, aquatic environments, biology, and taking a plunge on New Year's or any other day. Thanks to Alan Moore for lending his voice and wade-in sounds to this episode.  We close this first episode of the New Year with about 45 seconds of music to give a hydrological hello to 2022. Here's “New Year's Water,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music. MUSIC - ~46 sec – instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this episode.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water. AUDIO NOTES AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This Virginia Water Radio episode revises and replaces Episode 195, 1-6-14. Thanks to Alan Moore for allowing Virginia Water Radio to record sounds during his annual New River wade-in on January 1, 2014.“New Year's Water” is copyright 2016 by Torrin Hallett, used with permission.  Thanks very much to Torrin for composing the piece especially for Virginia Water Radio.  Torrin is a 2018 graduate of Oberlin College and Conservatory in Oberlin, Ohio; a 2020 graduate in Horn Performance from Manhattan School of Music in New York; and a 2021 graduate of the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver.  He is currently a graduate student at the Yale School of Music.

IMAGES Two photos of the New River near the county line between Giles and Montgomery counties in Virginia, looking upstream: At dawn on January 1, 2014 (upper photo) and at 8:40 a.m. on January 1, 2022 (lower photo). EXTRA INFORMATION ABOUT COLD WATER SAFETY The following is quoted from the National Weather Service, “Cold Water Hazards and Safety,” online at https://www.weather.gov/safety/coldwater. “Warm air doesn't always mean warm water in lakes, streams or oceans.  Fifty-five degree water may not sound very cold, but it can be deadly.  Plunging into cold water of any temperature becomes dangerous if you aren't prepared for what the sudden exposure can do to your body and brain.  Warm air temperatures can create a false sense of security for boaters and beach goers, so if you are planning to be on or near the water, arrive knowing the conditions and how to protect yourself.  Cold water drains body heat up to 4 times faster than cold air.  When your body hits cold water, “cold shock” can cause dramatic changes in breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.  The sudden gasp and rapid breathing alone creates a greater risk of drowning even for confident swimmers in calm waters. In rougher open water this danger increases.  Unplanned immersion in cold water can be life-threatening for anyone without protection from the temperatures or a lifejacket to help you stay afloat.  When Cold Shock and Hypothermia begin to impact your ability to think and act, life jackets and flotation can create extra time for help to arrive or for you to get out of danger.   Even the most experienced cold water surfers, swimmers or boaters know to prepare for the conditions.” SOURCES Used for Audio Encyclopedia Britannica, “Thermodynamics,” online at https://www.britannica.com/science/thermodynamics.

First Sunday after Christmas The Collect: Almighty God, you have poured upon us the new light of your incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. Old Testament: Isaiah 61:10-62:3 10I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my whole being shall exult in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations. 1For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out like the dawn, and her salvation like a burning torch. 2The nations shall see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give. 3You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. Psalm: 147 or 147:13-21 [1 Hallelujah!        How good it is to sing praises to our God! *        how pleasant it is to honor him with praise! 2 The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem; *        he gathers the exiles of Israel. 3 He heals the brokenhearted *        and binds up their wounds. 4 He counts the number of the stars *        and calls them all by their names. 5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power; *        there is no limit to his wisdom. 6 The Lord lifts up the lowly, *        but casts the wicked to the ground. 7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; *        make music to our God upon the harp. 8 He covers the heavens with clouds *        and prepares rain for the earth; 9 He makes grass to grow upon the mountains *        and green plants to serve mankind. 10 He provides food for flocks and herds *        and for the young ravens when they cry. 11 He is not impressed by the might of a horse; *        he has no pleasure in the strength of a man; 12 But the Lord has pleasure in those who fear him, *        in those who await his gracious favor.] 13 Worship the Lord, O Jerusalem; *        praise your God, O Zion; 14 For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; *        he has blessed your children within you. 15 He has established peace on your borders; *        he satisfies you with the finest wheat. 16 He sends out his command to the earth, *        and his word runs very swiftly. 17 He gives snow like wool; *        he scatters hoarfrost like ashes. 18 He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; *        who can stand against his cold? 19 He sends forth his word and melts them; *        he blows with his wind, and the waters flow. 20 He declares his word to Jacob, *        his statutes and his judgments to Israel. 21 He has not done so to any other nation; *        to them he has not revealed his judgments.        Hallelujah! Epistle: Galatians 3:23-25;4:4-7 23Now before faith came, we were imprisoned and guarded under the law until faith would be revealed. 24Therefore the law was our disciplinarian until Christ came, so that we might be justified by faith. 25But now that faith has come, we are no longer subject to a disciplinarian, 4But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as children. 6And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”7So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God. Gospel: John 1:1-18 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. 8He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. 9The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. 11He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him. 12But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God, 13who were born, not of blood or of the will of the flesh or of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father's only son, full of grace and truth. 15(John testified to him and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks ahead of me because he was before me.'”)16From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17The law indeed was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father's heart, who has made him known.

In an ageing society, Kyra is wondering why there are not more senior citizens involved in environmental volunteering. She is sitting down with three representatives from environmental organizations from where she lives on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Scott Babinowich from the National Park Service, Sara Hallas from the North Carolina Coastal Federation and Taylor McConnell with the Aquarium on Roanoke Island. She also talks to seniors at the senior center and uncovers a few reasons why people would or would not volunteer. Bottom line: everyone can volunteer, no matter their age or how much time they have on their hands - everything is beneficial: to you, society, environmental organizations and most importantly our planet. Thank you for tuning in and supporting the All Swell? Podcast!

CHIARA FRANCESCA on Embodied Care /266

In this week's episode, we ground ourselves in our embodied reality with guest Chiara Francesca, who invites us to explore what it means to be aware of our bodies and the way that they feel in this world. With a deep commitment to future visioning, we unpack the significance of what it means to “heal” amidst a system that is so violently creating our perpetual states of illness. Moving beyond notions of healing as a singular, individual act, Chiara Francesca asks us to think about what it will take for care and community to thrive. In conversation, we explore the emotional experience behind acupuncture, how a disability justice framework shapes Chiara Francesca's work, the connection between Earth and bodily experienced trauma, and how to create a conducive environment for embodiment. Chiara Francesca reminds us that “healing is a collective endeavor,” and if we truly want to co-create a healthy society, we must work to liberate one another from survival mode. Originally from Italy, and currently residing in Chicago, Chiara is a queer artist, writer, organizer, acupuncturist, immigrant, and former teen ma' living with multiple disabilities. Their clinical focus is on mental health, trauma, CPTSD, and queer/trans health. She is committed to building collaborative spaces for community care and centering collective health in and out of movements for justice. Music by Cy X, Te Martin, and Secret Cigarette.
