Hey everyone! 

We will be giving our first ever presentation at Green Mountain College next week! The event will be focused on spreading information and awareness, sharing our mission and goals as a company, and meeting with members of the community and allies in a safe environment. With an emphasis on the experiences trans and nonbinary individuals go through thanks to transphobia and ways to effect change.

Dates and Times: 
Saturday April 30th from 3-6pm @ East Room 
Sunday May 1st from 1-4pm @ The Gorge
Both locations in Withey Hall

College Address:
Green Mountain College 
1 Brennan Cir 
Poultney, VT 05764

It’s a free event, snacks and drinks will be provided, and we would love to see you there! 

Even if you can’t make it, we’ll be posting some of our materials used here after the presentation so nobody misses out! If you’re interested in having Ways2Raise do a presentation near you, contact us at

OTIS: Optimized Traveling Independent Space

Green Mountain College

REED students in Prof. Lucas Brown’s design/build class unveil their semester project, OTIS, to the community.

“Good workmanship—that is, careful, considerate, and loving work—requires us to think considerately of the whole process, natural and cultural, involved in the making of wooden artifacts […]. The good worker loves the board before it becomes a table, loves the tree before it yields the board, loves the forest before it gives up the tree.”
-Wendell Berry “Preserving Wildness”
