Released February 2018.

This discussion-based card game was created as a collective learning & engagement tool to initiate and enhance safe space discourse, wherever it was played. 

Conceptualized by Kristen, with design contribution by Alanna Fields, each pack presented the opportunity to empower players to organize, amplify and participate in supportive discourse. The packs included community submitted questions about everyday topics to foster deeper understandings and collaborations. 



Launched February 2017.

In June 2019, The SafeWordSociety Podcast was donated to the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library - as part of a collection catalogued by Steven G. Fullwood and Miranda Sims, Founders of the Nomadic Archivists Project

For 5 seasons, The SafeWordSociety Podcast used interviews & discussions with thought leaders, influencers and everyday people to navigate the authenticity of identity and spread the tools for revolutionary survival on a daily basis.
