Announcing Our 2019 Goddess on the Rise Winner

Kasi Martin

Kasi’s work is promoting sustainable fashion through many endeavors including her website, The Peahen. We loved her response to our question : What does the #GoddessOnTheRise movement mean to you?

It means living in a way that feeds your soul, feeds others souls and doesn’t deplete the Earth (our goddess numerous uno!)

I’m in total agreement Kasi, and thanks for your courage, determination and advancement of a cause dear to our hearts.

Determined by public vote, Kasi as this year’s Goddess on the Rise, is winning some amazing prizes. She’ll be joining The Women’s Empowerment Expedition to Malawi, sponsored by Orbis Expeditions.

We are so proud of the work she is doing. Here’s what the
#Gratitude4TheGoddess movement means to Francesca.

Lifting up the voices of anyone who identifies as a woman, especially those with minority/marginalized identities who often are overlooked. Respecting and revering indigenous cultures, uprooting oppression in all its forms, creating an atmosphere of freedom, safety and joyful expression.
