Ramelcy Uribe is a Black Dominicana from The South Bronx!
Most recently, she has worked as a youth worker, consciousness-raising educator, and freelance consultant with Aligned Strategies LLC, and with NoVo grantee partner Sadie Nash Leadership Project. She spends much of her time facilitating “Hood Girl Healing” workshops and supporting curriculum design at Brown Girl Recovery.
Ramelcy is invested in creating and nurturing spaces where Girls and Womxn of Color can practice tenderness and vulnerability as radical acts of resistance, love, and healing. She is currently working on a digital archive, The Tenderoni Archives, where these practices and rituals of vulnerability will be archived and documented.
As a novice farmer, Ramelcy sees land stewardship and growing one’s own foods and medicines as essential components of diasporic Black folks’ healing and liberation for ourselves and our communities, and so she is excited to be building fellowship with other Black growers.
As Program Coordinator, Ramelcy hopes to continue to support our justice spaces to better align themselves with our values, and the worlds we seek to birth. Beyond MEV, she hopes to continue to co-create spaces that work to preserve, honor, and expand the brilliance and wisdoms her community(ies) has to offer.
