Angela Sevin is a white, cis female, rural educated, middle class raised educational consultant, facilitator and visual artist. Passionate about racial equity and stewarding the world we inhabit, she works holistically in collaboration with cutting edge leaders, developing solutions with and for resilient communities. After earning a graduate degree in Experiential Education, she helped start and run several small democratic schools, co-designed the groundbreaking Pathways to Resilience re-entry project and directs the Green Life environmental literacy and self-sufficiency peer education program at San Quentin. She encourages people from all walks of life to come together and share their hopes and desires as well as sorrow and despair about the condition of life here on our planet home. Since the mid 90s, she has worked toward creating educational environments inclusive of social change ideals and activist principles balanced with individual empowerment. By embracing differences compassionately, facilitating others (including herself!) to discover their passion, and with a unique focus on collective wisdom, Angela envisions a future where creativity and learning are nurtured in a way that integrates sustainable and regenerative ways of being.
As a community builder, Angela is passionate about working with Saphichay to further its mission of “helping people reconnect to their ancestral roots”. “I am especially excited about Saphichay’s engagement with indigenous youth and facilitating their ability to reclaim the wisdom of their communities and applying it practically to their lives.”
