ABOUT NARRATIVES UNBOUND
Transforming the world one conversation at a time.
Narratives Unbound was founded in 2019 by Community Connector and Educator Nafasi Ferrell to further education as a liberatory process. With a sharp focus on economic and racial equity, we are a mission-driven company working to understand the implications of structural racism and advance actions to improve the economic and social outcomes for individuals, families and ultimately our communities.
We courageously envision a world where individuals, families, and communities share in brave spaces and conversations to accept the past, heal the present and co-create a future full of intergenerational wisdom. It is more important than ever that we center our lived experiences, learn from our history and co-create the world we wish to live in.
We believe that without understanding our racialized past, our economic systems, and what we need to do to heal the trauma within ourselves, we will continue to perpetuate the very inequities that we fight so hard to change.
As you engage with our work it is our hope that you will find value in what is shared and have hope for tomorrow. Together we will unbind minds, explore the stories of our lives and develop new ways to see the world with a lens of clarity that will drive equity forward.
We look forward to continuing this journey of liberation with you.
Our Mission & Vision:
Narratives Unbound strengthens our communities by expanding understandings of racial and economic systems through financial coaching, community workshops, and trainings. We envision a world where individuals, families, and communities share in brave spaces and conversations to accept the past, heal the present and co-create a future full of intergenerational wisdom.
In order to be trustworthy stewards, we center and affirm the following values:
Integrity in action is alignment of actions and values.
Community in action is mutual support and collaboration.
Respect in action is trusting in community and in each person to develop and use their own tools and inner wisdom.
Responsibility in action is supporting the common good and doing one's best at all times.
Lifelong learning in action is choosing to learn everyday, creating opportunities for growth and the renewal of one’s attitude and mindset.
