Our Purpose

To end systemic racism by providing a healing environment for small diverse groups to engage in education and brave conversations about race.  We will reflect on identities, the ways racism affects all aspects of our lives, and move from empathy to action for long-lasting racial justice.

Who Are We? 

We are a community of educators, facilitators, parents, consultants, entrepreneurs, and youth development professionals who have created courageous collaborative spaces for many years.  We are committed to the work of justice in the broadest sense possible while putting a laser focus on racism and how it is negatively impacting our community and world.
