“This work is regenerative.”
Growth is possible.
Erika Uyterhoeven is a Massachusetts State Representative. In our work together, we've mapped barriers to progress in the State House and detailed how a culture driven by power and fear serves to disconnect Reps from constituents.
Whether knocking doors to support progressive candidates or building a cold frame to grow winter greens, Erika sniffs out opportunities and puts her shoulder to tiny wedges of possibility. She reminds us that old structures need not stay ossified and that growth can be found in harsh conditions.
The project: We worked with Act On Mass's team of organizers and Erika to imagine ways to create a more visionary, creative, inclusive and compassionate State House.
