This only works if the best stuff is free & accessible for folks who can't afford a paywall. Your support is critical to keep that up.

If you believe all families and educators should have access to my work, AND you believe each of us have a responsibility in raising this next generation of kind and compassionate humans, please contribute at tier that works for you.

Collaborator-Supporters get:

All the stuff I already provide for free

Patreon perks

  • Email updates: The only way to get email updates is to join the patreon community. These go out once a week or so, whevever I make a patreon post.
  • Patreon posts & articles Check out our previous archive of patreon content, such as the Smashing Wealth Inequality series, problematic book analysis videos, and sneak peeks on upcoming website articles so you can beat the library rush when our book lists go public.
  • Feedback Polls - I'll send these out occasionally to help me focus on the challenges you need support with as we move forward together.

Temporarily Unlocked During The Pandemic
To support families and educators impacted by school shut downs, I'm unlocking all the patron-stuff on the website through 2020 or the shutdowns, whichever is longer (so you don't need to rush).
  • my working collection of booklists-in-progress where I unpack problematic tropes and narrow in on the issues we need to write about next
  • Our monthly Good Finds book collections to bring you hope and joy.
  • Our  Monthly Recaps, where I send one big update on all the stuff I created and updated that month, plus news from the front on praxis in parenting and local activism.

Connect with me and other dedicated Kyriarchy-Smashers


Join the Luminary community where you can feel heard and supported in raising kind & courageous kiddos.

Luminary-Supporters get:

  • You get the same rewards as the Collaborator supporters, plus...

  • Join The Luminary Brain Trust - My favoritest place on the interwebs!

    Join us in The Luminary Brain Trust, a private Facebook group where we're tacking in-depth discussions, troubleshooting challenges, and working together.

    This is where we explore and reaffirm ways to keep our personal activism work sustainable while balancing daily life raising little humans. It's also where I pilot & experiment shenanigans on how we learn and engage not just our kids, but our wider communities in smashing the kyriarchy.

    Join our Trauma Stewardship discussion to prevent and heal from activist burn out, the Pod Community series on sustaining interdependent communities to raise resilient kids, our grown-up book club discussions on books by Indigenous authors and authors of color, and more in our ongoing weekend open threads.

    Stuff like that - we're always experimenting with new stuff.
  • If you have a question or want to connect with me:

    In 2020, I'll be severely reducing email and social media, except within this group.

    So if you want to poke me - This is the place to ask questions. The greatest thing is you'll connect not just with me - but with the dedicated, kind and compassionate leaders who have joined us.

Spend less time on redundant research and more time smashing the kyriarchy.

I tend to freak out when you support BFL at this above-and-beyond level. I tell all my friends about you.

Shenanigans include:

  • The same rewards as previous tiers, plus…

  • Ethical Peace Of Mind

    Have a clear conscience when you repackage, find inspiration, and spin off the stuff you learn from my work in your personal blog and career assignments.
  • Prioritized Attention

    This could go unsaid, but OBVIOUSLY I'll prioritize your requests. If you can't find what you're looking for in our existing library of content, send me private requests for advice or book lists via patreon private message.


ILLUMINATI CONSULTATIONS
$180 per month
Get personal 1-on-1 support.

Shenanigans include:

  • Let's you and me get into cahoots

    Need custom real-time support? At this tier, you get 60 minutes of my undivided attention discussing a topic of your choice, via phone, email, or video chat.

    This includes 1-on-1 support for caregivers, help creating webinars, workshops, and online panel discussions.
  • Emotional & Intellectual Labor

    I get a LOT of people who just want to connect with me for 1-on-1 advice and I love helping - but it takes a lot out of me and I just don't have that kind of time.

    So this consulting tier covers my expenses (childcare, etc.) while I consider your challenges, provide support strategies, and tap into my resources to address all your questions.
  • Clear Step-By-Step Guidance

    When you schedule your monthly consult, I'll reach out with easy-to-answer questions so I can make the best use of our time together.

    During our time, I'll share clear disclosure & accountability guidelines to make sure you feel safe sharing and brainstorming.

    After, I follow up with resources, a recap of our talk, and action steps to quickly implement the strategies we discuss.

This is mostly contract-style work outside of patreon billed at an hourly rate, but I have it listed here for reference. If you need more than one consult (or for events lasting more than 1 hour), reach out to me and we can set that up.
