“I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.”- Audre Lorde





Truth to Power is a philosophical framework grounded in four fundamental concepts:

  • Agency
    • the capacity to act upon the world and not just give personal of intersubjective (agreed upon) meaning to it; capacity to act purposively and reflectively…to reiterate and remake the world in which they live
  • Boldness
    • we are socialized to respect fear; boldness asks that you move through being afraid to and toward the deeply rooted values that guide you.
  • Consciousness 
    • the state or quality of awareness, or, of being aware of an external object or something within oneself.
  • Determination
    • firmness of purpose; resoluteness


  • Critical and creative pedagogy 
  • Agency and self-determination
  • Social Justice
  • Leadership
