Opening Pathways to the Soul

I support the following groups and non-profit organizations:

DUWAMISH TRIBE, the host tribe of Seattle and King County; the Long House is located along the Duwamish River
The Duwamish people have been in the Seattle/Greater King County area since time immemorial. Our stories, such as "North Wind, South Wind", tell of the last Ice Age, and an Ice Weir breaking over the Duwamish River.

We were the first signatories on the Treaty of Point Elliott in 1855, signed by Chief Si'ahl, who was chief of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes.
 Our longhouse today stands across the street from where one of our largest villages was located before it was burned down by settlers in 1895.
We are the host tribe for Seattle, our area’s only indigenous tribe. Many of our enrolled members still live on Duwamish aboriginal territory, which includes Seattle, Burien, Tukwila, Renton, and Redmond. Our tribe is governed by a 1925 constitution and its bylaws. The six-members* tribal council, headed by Cecile Hansen since 1975, meets monthly, and tribal gatherings are held at least annually. Tribal leadership has been very stable with fewer than six changes in leadership in the last 85 years.
Duwamish Tribal Services, is a 501[c]3 organization established in 1983 by the Duwamish Tribal Council to promote the social, cultural, and economic survival of the Duwamish Tribe. We brought suit against the government in 1925 and received a positive judgement for our claims in 1934, each of our members receiving payment from the government in 1964. We filed our first petition for recognition in 1978 and have been working for that acknowledgment ever since in the face of great odds.
Real Rent
Real Rent calls on people who live and work in Seattle to make rent payments to the Duwamish Tribe. Though the city named for the Duwamish leader Chief Seattle thrives:
The Tribe has yet to be justly compensated for their land, resources, and livelihood.
You can do something today to stand in solidarity with First Peoples of this land by paying Real Rent. All funds go directly to Duwamish Tribal Services (DTS) to support the revival of Duwamish culture and the vitality of the Duwamish Tribe.

(Quoted from the website) The Philemon Foundation exists to make available the complete works of C. G. Jung in editions that meet the highest standards of scholarship and do justice to the true measure of this major creative thinker.
The Philemon Foundation is an expanding group of scholars, board members, and donors who share the mandate to prepare the unpublished works of C. G. Jung (1875-1961), the eminent Swiss psychologist. In distinction to the widely known Collected Works, the complete works include manuscripts, seminars, and correspondence hitherto unpublished, numbering in the tens of thousands of pages. The historical, clinical, and cultural importance of these materials equals the importance of that which has been published to date. The Philemon Foundation works toward completing the publication of C. G. Jung’s work as volumes in the Philemon Series.
The Philemon Foundation is a fully independent not-for-profit organization and is not involved in the commercial exploitation of the existing Collected Works of C. G. Jung or with secondary literature on Jung. The foundation receives no royalties from the publications of the Philemon Series and depends entirely on donations to pay its scholars, translators and editors to prepare these works for publication.

(Quoted from the website) Our Shared Vision – Uniting stakeholders to increase access to education!
Books and Bricks Global partners with Kenyan parents teachers and the government, therefore uniting stakeholders in our shared vision to increase access to education for children. By matching local Kenyan village fundraising efforts with US donors, the organization makes an enormous difference for students and for communities in a variety of ways: paying school fees for elementary, high school, and college students; providing school supplies for individuals and schools; building classrooms and libraries; and supplying books.

(Quoted from the website) During a 2018 summer mosaic class in Ravenna, Italy, Kathi Bulfin noticed mosaic plaques throughout the city, on banks, restaurants, homes, and businesses of all types. These beautiful works of art were created to raise funds in support of women and children who were victims of domestic violence. The idea to replicate the Ravenna fundraiser here in Seattle Washington was born. In 2019, the initial work was done to bring this idea to life. In 2020, the Seattle Honors Project was launched with the guidance and support of the amazing staff and artists at Seattle Mosaic Arts.
Seattle Honors Project will begin fundraising by celebrating women. Our initial project: Seattle Honors Women raises money that will be donated to: 
Young Women Empowered - a local organization that cultivates the power of diverse young women to be creative leaders and courageous changemakers through transformative programs. Learn more about Y We at: 
New Beginnings - a local organization that empowers survivors and mobilizes community awareness and action to end domestic violence. Learn more about New Beginnings at: 
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest provides reproductive and sexual health care, education, and advocacy. Learn more about Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest at:

Tae Phoenix (she/they) is a singer-songwriter, filmmaker, activist, and theatre artist based on the occupied territory of the Coast Salish and Duwamish peoples, colloquially known as Seattle, WA. 
As a queer, autistic Latine Jew, Tae’s work is shaped by lived experience, ancestral memory, empathy, and common sense.
They were notably arrested in January 2020 for singing “Brave” in the US Senate’s Russell Rotunda during the first impeachment trial of the then-president. They have participated in many civil disobedience actions across the country and gave a talk on the subject for beginners at Ignite Seattle #38.
They serve as the resident music & arts leader for the Washington State Poor People’s Campaign and frequently contribute op-eds on politics and social justice to publications including Newsweek, The Guardian, and The Forward.
They are also the co-founder of Trek the Vote, a non-partisan network of Star Trek actors, fans, and creators dedicated to fair and equitable elections and have written for both and Women at Warp.
Awards and nominations include: 2020 nominee for the Seattle Mayor’s Arts Award and Best Music Video at the 2019 Hollywood Women’s Film Festival and the 2019 Shoreline Short Film Festival for “We Shall Not Be Moved,” which was also a finalist at the 2019 Oaxaca FilmFest and screened at the 2019 SIFF Bumbershoot showcase.

Below is a poem I wrote in response to the Me Too Movement, founded by Tarana Burke: I include this poem in recent and current presentations. 

by Ann Beth Blake

Ignored; Demeaned; Invalidated; Harassed; Bullied;
Punished for speaking out and for standing up for ourselves;
Underpaid; Passed by for promotions; Unpaid;
Excluded; Targeted; Used; Hated; Abused;
Treated as chattel and property;
Required to provide sexual services for survival;
Kidnapped; Sold into slavery;
Raped; Tortured; Mutilated; Murdered; Thrown away.

Specifically, from privilege and living in Seattle:
Being aware of surroundings;
Standing ground; Acting visible;
Surrounding with Bliss Bubble.

After dark:
Holding key facing outward between fingers;
Carrying pepper spray;
Being watchful; Walking with purpose;
Avoiding short cuts; Never walking down alleys;
Never catching eye contact; Being invisible;
Surrounding with Shit Shield;
Before entering car, always checking back seat.

And yet, we rise;* still, we resist; nevertheless, we persist.**

Being female.

**McConnell, M., (February 7, 2017) in response to Senator Elizabeth Warren’s reading on the Senate floor, Coretta Scott King’s 1986 letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, despite efforts from male senators to silence Senator Warren. Phrase adopted by the Feminist Movement as a rallying statement.
