We've all seen those memes...🩴🩴🩴

You know the ones in which the punchline is a mom chasing after her child with a chancla, or calling him a pendejo in response to anything or manipulative saying “¿no me quieres?” (you don’t love me?) when a child doesn’t want to share with them, give them a kiss, or hug them. 

And even if we felt uncomfortable about it, we probably laughed when we saw it. Survivor’s humor is a real thing.

But as we’ve had our own kids, we’ve come to realize that those jokes really aren’t funny. And we’re recognizing that being on the receiving end of such behaviors hurt us and impacted us in ways that we’re still unpacking today.

And there’s no way in hell that we’ll do the same to our children. Not us.

We’re done with the verbal, emotional, and psychological chancletazos we received growing up.


We want more connection.

We want more expressed love. 

We want to #EndChanclaCulture

But what does it mean to #endCHANCLACULTURE?

what even is “Chancla Culture” & What's its origin?

how can we do away with it & why is it crucial that we do?

I answer all these questions and more in our core workshop:

Support for your joureny to #EndChanclaCulture in your familia

The movement to #EndChanclaCulture will take all of us doing our part to unlearn the legacy of physical, psychological, and emotional violence that our ancestors learned through our colonizers. 

The End Chancla Culture Introductory Workshop will provide a foundational overview of the origins of Chancla Culture, the systemic & social factors that contribute to its prevalence, the many ways it manifests, as well as beginning steps to take to break this cycle.

You’ll walk away with a working understanding of:

What Chancla Culture is, its origins, as well as why it's harmful

The effects that colonialist-adapted practices have on children

How colonial social constructs are still impacting our familias today

What it means to decolonize your parenting & End Chancla Culture

Practices you can explore to begin decolonizing your familia

The Ending Chancla Culture Introductory Workshop will support you to set a strong foundation for raising future ancestors who won't need to heal from their childhoods⁣.

What people Like you Have Said about 
Our Ending Chancla CUlture Workshop

"We're ready to see change in our community!"

Attending this workshop made me realize that me and many others are ready to see change in our community and I am motivated to learn more and get the message out there (end chancla culture) to see the underprivileged communities blossom.
— Stephanie O.

"What a powerful presentation!"

I found this workshop incredibly insightful, particularly for helping me to understanding my own mother and family history. The clear line the workshop drew between the arrival of conquerers and colonizers to changes in parenting practices was an eye opener for me. I really appreciated the naming of harm while simultaneously offering compassion and empathy. What a powerful presentation - thank you!
