At A Certain Work we hope to listen, share and move in one another’s life stories. An important part of our work is to uncover and elevate the systemically silenced and submerged stories of individuals and their communities. In the deep listening of overlooked stories, we work toward the messy work of restoring humanity through empathy, justice and kindness.
