At the Fan Level, you help pay the bills required to maintain a virtual co-learning space.

Because equity and liberation is central to my personal and work practices, ALL REWARDS ARE MADE ACCESSIBLE TO MEMBERS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY CAN AFFORD TO PAY. However, I have created higher paying tiers (Pay it Forward) for organizations or schools who can afford to pay more and want their staff to have access to our Culturally Responsive Resources Membership plan in MRM Village at a significantly reduced rate (It's, technically, easier to set up this option in Patreon than it is in our Village.).

About

Hey there Familia,

My name is Chemay Morales-James, and I am the creator of My Reflection Matters (MRM), which you can learn more about here. I'm using Patreon to help me expand & sustain a virutal, co-learning community I am building out of MRM called My Reflection Matters Village. This virtual co-learning community is for BIPOC families seeking support in raising and educating free people. Our space supports caregivers who are seeking or walking the path of self-directed education (SDE) with their children and want access to decolonized, liberatory educational supports and resources to help them along their journey as they co-learn and co-create with families, healers, and other facilitators in our virtual village.

To be clear, MRM Village is not a school. MRM Village is revolutionizing education by swapping control of education from formal institutions right into the hands of parents and thier children. We offer families a bypass from the current, traditional institution of schooling that perpetuates white supremacy and stifles creative, critical thinking and people's innate ability to lead their own learning, by providing them a space where they can build their capacity to serve as learning guides and advocates for their children so that they can help connect them to their life-long passion-work. Our goal is simple. We want families to live their happiest, most purposeful life in community with those they love. We see liberation-centered education and parenting as a pathway to this. Families who come here can expect to:
  • Build community and support with other families navigating self-directed education and liberated parenting via our group coaching and workshops. 
  • Co-create customized learning experiences (that take place outside our platform) with other families and vetted, socially-conscious (majority BIPOC) facilitators, healers, & mentors to support decolonized parenting for themselves and learning for their children.
  • Get access to our Padlet of decolonized activities especially created and curated for our families to engage with their learners at home.
  • Share, barter, or offer low cost social service resources to each other outside education. This is vital as we all know access to quality health care, employment, and housing impacts a family's capacity to support their child(ren)'s learning.
  • Get access to our curated, culturally responsive resources and tips to support decolonized learning. 
  • Participate in socially conscious and joy-making events created by our community for our community.
  • Purchase or participate in a-la-carte learning experiences offered by vetted facilitators including myself.
Why Suport MRM Village?
Your paid sponsorship ensures that I am able to:
  • Create and curate customized resources and events to support liberated education and parenting.
  • Curate a pool of revolutionary learning facilitators across the globe who want to co-create innovative and liberatory learning experiences with caregivers and their families.
  • Offer financial assistance for BIPOC families wanting to engage in paid learning experiences in either our virtual or physical village in Waterbury, CT (Learn more here: http://www.myreflectionmatters.org/mrm-in-ct-home-edu/).
  • Design workshops for caregivers and educators seeking support around creating liberatory, self-directed learning environments for Black, Indigenous, and other kids of color as well as provide them with opportunities to heal from the trauma of colonization and oppressive parenting.
  • Hire help and cover other expenses such as marketing, website maintanance, insurance, etc. needed to sustain and grow our in-the-cloud village.
How Can You Support MRM? The fact you are here tells me you understand the time, energy, and thought required to create and maintain such an important space for revolutionary parenting and education. Thank-you! To be clear, this platform is for folx or organizations interested in supporting and sustaining our virtual village. While Patreon membership may give you access to discounted rates and some resources shared in our Village, it does not give you access to My Reflection Matters Village or any of our paid memberships. You can visit https://my-reflection-matters.mn.co to join our free network and learn more about our paid memberships there.

I've set up a more equitable system of support that allows individual sponsors to reap all of the rewards I have to offer regardless of how much folks can afford to pay. For organizations that have larger budgets than individuals, I've created two "Pay It Forward" tiers that allow them to earn rewards that can be shared with their extended staff/team. This way, their dollars pay it forward for both of our communities!
