On March 16th, 2019, I presented a workshop entitled “Globetrotting 101: Smart ways to navigate mother earth,” at the 34th Annual Empowering Womxn of Color Conference at the University of California in Berkeley. The theme of the conference this year was “Rooted and Rising.” There were over 2000 women conference attendees. The high-spirited event was launched with a native drumming and chanting circle. This was my second time presenting this workshop and for the second year my workshop was standing room only. The attendees stayed to the end and had lots of great questions and words of travel wisdom to share. Keynote speakers were Alicia Garza and Winona LaDuke.
