From Workshop Participants:

“Something unique about this workshop that I am grateful for is that I am coming away from it with a set of practical tools and skills that I can practice in many situations.”  – Elli R.

“I have been working on this field of racial equity for a long time, but I have my blinds spots and I need to keep practicing and learning. It is so wonderful to meet new people, build community and learn how we can discuss these difficult issues.” – Z., WA

“The framework of the skill set has been very helpful for me and the next step is to practice. I now feel very motivated to practice these skills with a community of people that feel safe and supportive.” – Sally

The Five Habits of Speaking Justice, our powerful framework.

We teach them in our workshops. We also take time to vision, so you can create goals that contribute, at our own level, to the dismantling of systemic racism and all forms of injustice in concrete ways.
