Socially Conscious Gifts

By Mariangela Abeo

Mariangela Abeo ​(they/them)​ is the photographer and creator of the ​Faces of Fortitude​ movement, which began as a project consisting of a series of portraits documenting the healing of those affected by suicide. After losing their brother over a decade ago to suicide, and surviving their own severe attempt as a teen, Mariangela initially started this movement for their own healing. The project has since expanded into TEDx and other public speaking events, traveling gallery exhibits, a podcast, and two upcoming books. Mariangela’s gifts suggestions are for socially conscious folks, with products and services from Black-owned and trans-owned businesses.
