What does 'support' mean to you?
Raising kids while smashing the kyriarchy can feel impossible.
But we can do it - if we work together.
Opportunities for Cahoots
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.
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).

There isn't pressure to finish or perfect everything right now, this week, or this summer. Instead, there's the expectation that we will all circle back around with new insight in the future, so there are many chances to notice something you need to think about, plan, or do and to set that observation aside so you can pick it up again later.
Still not sure what 'support' looks 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.
