Mission

CSWS - Mission.PNG

Can’t Stop! Won’t Stop! Consulting partners with organizations and leaders to increase their effectiveness on diversity, inclusion, equity and justice.

Vision

CSWS - Vision.jpeg

Can’t Stop! Won’t Stop! Consulting envisions a world where Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), womxn, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Two-Spirit, Intersex and Asexual/Agender (LGBTQ2IA+) folks, people with disabilities, working people and immigrants can be their full selves, build collective power, and create transformative change in their communities. 

Theory of Change

Through coaching, facilitation, strategic planning, capacity building and technical assistance, our goal is to ensure that historically marginalized communities feel empowered within campaigns, organizations and the world at large to excel their power to make social change, work and live in inclusive and nurturing spaces, and break down systemic barriers to socio-economic and societal freedom. We utilize arts, culture and healing in our practices and organize with an intersectional, liberatory and visionary framework. Our firm will cater to specific needs, have nuance and be flexible in our approach in developing partnerships with clients.

Advancing our Mission, Vision, and Theory of Change Through Our Core Values

EQUITABLE

 

We believe that everyone will live a more prosperous life when systems of oppression no longer exist and there is fairness, justice, and liberation for all. 

COMMUNITY

 

We are committed to building solidarity through being present for one another, learning with each other, and cultivating meaningful relationships that lift us up collectively. Storytelling is one of our most powerful assets.

 

LOVE

 

We operate from a place of love and compassion. We are open-minded about the ways to make social change. We believe Love is:

 

L = Linking & Liberating

O = Open-hearted & Inclusive 

V = Vibrational & Valuable 

E = Extraordinary & Abundant 

 

BRILLIANCE & CREATIVITY

 

We believe that radical passion comes from collective wisdom and radical imagination - expressing ourselves freely and authentically through culture, art, dance, graphic design, poetry, music, on stage, off-screen, on canvas, and more.

 

BALANCE & PERSONAL GROWTH

 

Growth is not linear and we honor that process. We are committed to everyone being their full selves by recognizing our needs, wants, and limitations. We understand that when we are grounded in community and work towards our healing, we can better live out our visions of transformative change.
