Being a part of the Loving Practice community was an incredibly powerful experience. I learned so much from the other participants and found myself reflecting on the points that were made during the sessions, long after they ended. - Kaitlyn C.

Meet Kiana Gabrielle

Hello! I’m Kiana (they/she), the founder and community steward for Loving Practice. I’m also a movement worker and Black queer feminist scholar exploring how relationships are sites of liberation.

Throughout the past decade, I've been a operations and program professional within various movements, spanning racial and economic justice, climate justice, queer liberation, labor, and bodily autonomy.

Loving Practice came to be after a few negative experiences where poor conflict management in movement spaces led to harm for myself and members of my community. I was frustrated by how often organizations have anti-capitalist, justice-oriented values for the world and those values not showing up internally.

I am constantly inspired by the ways people come together to create change in their communities. Yet, I've seen how without a deliberate focus on nurturing healthy relationships, we risk perpetuating harm and undermining our collective movements.

As the steward for Loving Practice, it is my greatest pleasure to help you create the world you want to live in.
