Faith E. Briggs


Vasu Sojitra is not seeking to inspire you to feel good and his trauma doesn’t exist solely to benefit the education of others. He is seeking to inspire you to move mountains and take action. Skiing is the method but the real mountains are the “isms” that fail to support disabled communities, communities of color and so many others for whom access has not been a right. Through his personal journey, the attempt of a new objective, the famed line “The Skillet” on Mt. Moran and through over 40,000 “dips to Nirvana”, we hear his truth and begin to comprehend what it might look like to be in solidarity.

Faith is a creative producer and director passionate about sharing contemporary stories that widen the spectrum of representation and help us all see our own possibilities. Her favorite feelings are a tie between sun on skin and warm mud oozing between bare toes. She is grateful for the life changing knowledge of literary grandmothers such as Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Toni Morrison, Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Cade Bambara and many more.
