We are ‘the Kellys’.
Our name means warrior. Our mission is healing activists and activating healers.
We are modern, mystic, magic makers showing up to bring people together and fortify ourselves for the spiritual battle of energetic justice.
We are both white, European-descended women born on occupied Turtle Island, or what many people and our structural systems have come to call the United States America.
