Black Love Convergence is a place where the diaspora is in full bloom. We are pleased to have @Heidi Lopez, join us on our host committee ad our plant magician! Heidi Maria Lopez (she/they) creates Love Healing and Liberation by curating experiences that support reflection, connection, healing and joy for the purpose of releasing trauma and living liberation NOW! They are a first generation, queer, Black, Quiskeyana woman who believes in people, our power to shape our lives and create new possibilities. She builds relationships that create transformational organizing so that people of color, particularly those most impacted by systems of violence, take back was has been taken from us, (re)claim our history, and build our futures without the infiltration of violence. They learned this work by experiencing it through their mother who created home as sanctuary even in the midst of storms. She has been doing this work of racial equity, liberation and healing for a decade by creating gatherings, writing and making medicine for a variety of organizations, groups, communities, people and her-self/cells. She/they honor, give gratitude and praise for all the sacrifices made from all people, places and things so she gets to do this work in the world.
