Making Ripples

“Transform yourself to transform the world.”

 Grace Lee Boggs

Beloved Detroit-based Chinese American activist and revolutionary 

Like Grace Lee Boggs, we believe that change must begin within. Like ripples in a pond, our internal transformation ripples outward, impacting our interpersonal relationships, our communities, and ultimately making sustainable positive social change possible.

"During challenging times like this, there is a great risk that community institutions that we rely upon will break down and people can become disconnected from each other. The virtual circle that you facilitated for us helped to renew and sustain our community, helping us to strengthen our collective resiliency as a school family."

Dr. Eric Peterson
Principal, West County Mandarin School

“Ripple has been a phenomenal partner. They bring deep experience in conflict and equity transformation, and in my work with them have successfully designed and led highly complex organizational interventions and strategies. They have exceptionally strong interpersonal skills and are able to build relationships and trust with varied stakeholders. They can handle any and all kinds of conflict and engage with conflicting parties with compassion, care and clarity. They understand the multitude of ways oppression and racism manifest and are able to provide meaningful supports to those who are impacted, while intervening with those who are causing harm.”
