This episode is a conversation about the concepts of othering and belonging, and the impact we might have if we could move housing and homeless systems and structures from ones that are built around “othering” over to ones that are built around “belonging.” We are diving into the ideas and thoughts of John Powell- his teachings, speaking and writing, and that of the Othering & Belonging Institute. And we talk about how belonging has guided the Regional Kitchen Table in the Twin Cities Metro Region.
I’m joined in this episode by LaQuita Limo. LaQuita is a Minnesotan by way of Mississippi. She is a mom, an educator, a student of life, and a housing justice activist. In our conversation she talks about telling hard truths and inviting people who she may disagree with into a conversation with clarity, grace, and maybe sometimes also a little charm.
