My Brother's Keeper | My Sister's Keeper Is About

Giving people first time access to one another and access to people they may have never had an opportunity to meet otherwise

MBK 2018

Understanding the urgency of our situation and starting each relationship with a rebuttable presumption of trust, foundational for building meaningful relationships

Taking off our masks and sharing our vulnerabilities to promote a nourishing environment of collective and individual authenticity-based well-being

masking vulnerability
expect less give more

Encouraging more gives than asks

Maintaining a positive group dynamic of empathy that doesn't tolerate looking down on one another or disrespect

Empathy compass
circle of trust

Ensuring that these shared experiences remain in the “circle of trust” and that repeating personal stories and opinions of others is not acceptable

Being each other’s keeper
