All social justice workshops start with important questions such as,
"What is racism?"
I believe that we need to start social justice conversations in a fundamentally different place.
Instead of asking "What is racism?" I might start with a question like,
"Why is it hard to talk about racism?"
Followed by questions like, "why is it important to be able to?
What messages did we receive growing up about talking about these issues?
Starting by examining these truths allows groups to get real with each other,
turn and face challenges and differences (rather than avoiding them),
and build a foundation together.
That way when we get to the, "What is racism?" question,
we can have a real conversation.
who do you work with?
I specialize in working with folks new to doing social justice work together, or
who want to talk their work to a deeper, more personal level.
From small group workshops for 15 to large group facilitations for 200+.
From student leader training, to professional development, to leadership training.

General Social Justice Workshops
Sometimes we want to take a broad look at this work. What's all this bias,
privilege, diversity stuff all about? Doing a general social justice workshop
allows us to examine this work from a lot of different angles and from
many of our different identities.
Identity/Topic Specific Workshops
We can also enter this conversation from a particular lens or identity topic.
While there are many more identities to enter this work from I facilitate
workshops from the lens of:
