#practicingJUSTICE retreats

justice isn't a moment, it's a practice.
what we practice is who we show up as. we can’t expect to have a movement for justice if we aren’t practicing justice.


a comprehensive model for community organizers, designed for both new & experienced organizers, that seeks to develop skills, with somatic & embodied leadership lenses, to develop effective organizers while uniquely cultivating leadership that creates necessary balance & self-care so organizers feel & are able to do movement work for the long haul.

UP | focus areas

what we love to do, most of all

strategic planning

UP has innovated a unique methodology for developing strategic plans that simultaneously attends to both short- + long-term goals using a somatic lens.

trainings (single or multi-day)

training imparts the analytical structure of somatics + embodied organizing, + teaches specific skills in each of our focus areas.


2-4 days retreats provide an uninterrupted environment that results in far more advancement than the equivalent time in episodic training.

leadership development

UP’s work emphasizes personal leadership skills as the foundation for sustainability + effectiveness.

organizational development

the overarching goal of UP’s work is to reshape organizational culture to prioritize wellness + dignity towards high efficiency + external impact.

embodied coaching™

UP engages the whole agency in every focus area + on every level using the embodied coaching™, a coaching methodology created by UP’s Principal Rusia Mohiuddin, (individual, staff-wide, executive, + the board).
