More About Teresa
Teresa lives her passion for creating social change by combining her work in social justice education with parenting. After graduating from law school, she opted to serve the cause of social change as an advocate, educator, and leader at three large public universities across the country. Her life was transformed after the births of two children. In spite of her espoused professional values, she realized that she had accepted, without question, the dominant cultural beliefs that adults have the right to control and coerce children. The children in her life have challenged her to live according to the values of liberation, freedom and respect as a parent and human being.
Using her experience in facilitating transformative learning, she began her own intensive learning journey. It led her to a deeper understanding that the ways our society treats children sets the foundation for all other forms of injustice. As a writer and consultant she works with other parents to do inner work as a foundation for outer action that ultimately liberates individuals, groups and communities. As individuals and a society we can create a base of love, wholeness, authenticity, and integrity that is the foundation for just and empowering relationships. And, as we are each reflections of the world, the world is changed by our commitment to wholeness, liberation, and freedom. Read more about Teresa’s work at www.ParentingforSocialChange.com.
