Igniting the next generation of kind & courageous leaders

Igniting the next generation of kind & courageous leaders

Together with our kids, we can fight for equality and social justice.
It's easier than you think - with the right support.

Kyriarchy-Smashing Parents

Raising Luminaries creates learning tools & brave spaces for parents raising the the next generation of kind & courageous leaders.

We are self-advocates and accomplices who admit... okay, sure - the world kinda sucks. But we feel in our bones the real possibility of creating an inclusive society where all kids could feel safe - if we create effective tools and opportunities to for good trouble.

Without taking ourselves too seriously, we co-create accessible resources, accountability training, and collaborative workshops to navigate parenting in a dystopian hellscape while centering the needs of those most impacted by oppression.

Parents, Caregivers & Educators

If you're tired of unsustainable activism expectations, caregiver burnout, and bursting into uncontrollable screams of despair and fury every time you open the news - welcome to our interdependent community of radically progressive caregivers. Together we can share the work (and help you chill out a bit).

Ashia Ray
Let's get into cahoots

What does 'support' look like for you?

I'm Ashia (they or she), Head Custodian of Raising Luminaries. I organize all this stuff here and facilitate all our group connections, workshops, and trainings.

As an Autistic, multiracial, too-radical, too-infodumpy, mom-type person who cares 'too much' about ALL THE THINGS - I know how hard it is to find a brace space where you feel safe enough to experiment and make friends.

So if you're still unsure which Raising Luminaries space is right for you, or you need 1-on-1 guidance - connect with me and we can figure it out together.


Let's collaborate
