The Living Well continues to create strategies to transfer knowledge while being a conduit for social connections, healing and economic empowerment.
Social relationships are directly linked to social health determinants which are defined by the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. These circumstances are shaped by the distribution of money, power and resources at global, national and local levels.
As a Center for Social and Economic Vibrancy we understand that our role is to build an eco-system that will disrupt the status quo for people who are marginalized by place of origin or zip code. We recognize that we are all connected to those who are at the greatest risk for survival. We are fervent in our mission to provide healing possibilities while organizing to make plain that we will resist policies and practices designed to undermine our gains for civil rights, religious freedoms, access to health care and education.
Right now in Baltimore City, budgets are being cut at the expense of our children. We must take a stand politically and also invest in our institutions who are dedicated to building and staining communities. We must include our children voices in forming new rules for engagement. We must reflect our higher selves in our daily actions towards one another.
Thank you for continuing to breathe life into our organization. No membership fee is required to join our team of doers. Your contributions in any form will be directed to those individuals and organizations that are working toward building a brighter future for all.
Maurissa Stone Bass, Director
