Paula lives on a small farmstead with her husband, two young children, mother, friends, and mates, goats, chickens, ducks, cats, rabbits, dogs, and bees in Sebastopol, California.  Community is a way of life. She loves learning whether in the classroom or outside. She earned her PhD in biochemistry.

Kerry is a community builder who lives in Northern California with her husband and son. She believes that through community, curiosity, and self-care we create our own unique art of mothering. Based on this philosophy she created Mothering Arts, a supportive, nurturing, and nourishing program for mothers and babies to gather in that first year after birth. Her education and experience include Waldorf early childhood, LifeWays North America, and twelve years working with families and young children. She enjoys gardening, music, hiking, camping and creating magical family experiences. At the root of what she learns each day within her own family and in community is CONNECTION.

ABOUT YOUR HOST: Scotty is a writer, filmmaker, actor, designer, and teacher. Born in Atlanta and raised on Jekyll Island, GA (population 700) by a white father and Chinese mother, he graduated from Georgia Tech with Mathematics and International Affairs degrees. After traveling the world as a tour manager for musicians, he moved to Los Angeles to work in film and TV. He began to volunteer and teach in schools, using screenwriting, filmmaking, and free-writing to help students channel their creativity, find their voice, and create community. This passion for storytelling and the growing reality of widespread social injustice and inequality, combined with his childhood in the Deep South, prompted him to shift the focus of his creative efforts. He now produces a podcast and essay series, Mass + Volume, on cultural identity and social change (including an interview with The People’s Supper co-founder Emily May). He also hosts The Joy of Joining In (JOJI), a series of writing and storytelling circles. He recently moved to New York to work with an education non-profit supporting young people to live in possibility in pursuit of their dreams. His connection with The People’s Supper was immediate, both as a response to the campaign/election as well as a way to grow as a host and facilitator of conversations that matter.

Now that she has a home in a community she cherishes, Jen hopes to create a warm, welcoming space for people to come together and share food, conversation, laughter, love: a home that honors real dialogue and what comes when we care enough about each other and ourselves to say what we mean with kindness.

    ABOUT THE EVENING: This is a Track II: Bridging Supper. The theme will focus on bridging + healing. Supper has the potential to be many things – a resistance to the constant pull of work, organizing, protesting or stress of living a marginalized life – by providing time to sit down, actually chew food, look into the face of others and share a time of rest and refueling. It can be an opportunity to build resilience by tanking up on nourishing conversation, healthy and delicious food and making or solidifying relationships. So bring your full self. All of you is welcome here.
