About the Catalyst Initiative of The Minneapolis Foundation:
Catalyst Initiative is a field of interest fund of The Minneapolis Foundation designed to build integrative health and healing in Minnesota. The Catalyst Initiative’s purpose is to honor and foster culturally authentic self-care practices to advance health and well-being. Catalyst taps into our innate power to heal and be well through two primary approaches: self-care as primary care and culturally meaningful trauma healing practices.

About Marnita’s Table:
