Sophie Sarkar (she/her) is an Avarna Group facilitation and thought partner, a community organizer, and artist based on the ancestral lands of the Lenni Lenape in what is now called Philadelphia. Both her art and organizing exist at the intersection of climate justice and collective liberation and in both she works in community with other Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to heal and deepen our relationships with each other, with our ancestors, and with the Earth. Some recent engagements include organizing with residents in North Philadelphia to address urban heat inequity, co-directing the PGM ONE Summit for BIPOC who love the Earth, and co-designing and facilitating Interwoven, a multi-week series on Black and Asian solidarity. She values leading with connection, healing ourselves to heal our systems, holding space for multiple truths, cultivating joy, embracing the wisdom of our bodies and the Earth, and building resilient relationships to address climate change.
