Why I Created This Workshop
Let me tell you a little bit about myself, and my work.
I started Racial Justice from the Heart after I got an email from my teenaged son where he told me had the shakes, crying spells, and lots of frustration from high profile killing of Black men and boys.
He felt like his life didn’t matter and there was nothing he could do about it.
I was crying in a public space while reading that email. Right then I committed to giving people the tools to wake up to racism, especially when its hidden and unintended racism.
Implicit Racial Bias - and What You Can Do to Stop It is a stepping stone for you to join me in this true labor of love.
Together we can change the world.
This workshop is not usually open to individuals. I’m making it available to you today - at a special rate of Pay What You Can ($97 Minimum). Spots are limited - so don’t miss out!Pay What You Can

“Everything you have taught me I have been using every day. I have helped several of my colleagues already, whether it is talking them through Feel Flow or advising them on how to have conversations about racism. I am so so so appreciative for you taking me on as an apprentice… I feel stronger and more confident.”
Most institutions in the U.S. reflect centuries of bias and racial trauma. Racial injustice and inequalities are prevalent and need to be stopped.
Before we can create healthy relationships across the color line, attract and retain racial diversity, or be effective advocates for change in our institutions we need to increase self-awareness.
This training is one step that will help you avoid needless harm and to actively take the right steps to create a society that works for all of us.
To do that, we need you.
In this workshop you will:
Acquire Basic Concepts
Define implicit racial bias, a white frame of reference, institutional racism, and interpersonal racism.
Understand the limits of color blindness as a strategy to overcome racial inequities.
Get Actionable Strategies
Learn five steps that you can take to reduce implicit racial bias.

We Honor His Legacy
The dates of this session fall only a few days after the 53rd anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This workshop is one way we honor his legacy.
In his last book, Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? Dr. King didn’t mince words on the state of racial relations and what needed to be done to fight for justice. What he said then is deeply applicable to our society today:
“I wept for my children and all black children who have been denied a knowledge of their heritage; I wept for all white children, who, through daily miseducation, are taught that the Negro is an irrelevant entity in American society; I wept for all the white parents and teachers who are forced to overlook the fact that the wealth of cultural and technological progress in America is a result of the commonwealth of inpouring contributions.
Whites, it must frankly be said, are not putting in a similar mass effort to re-educate themselves out of their racial ignorance. It is an aspect of their sense of superiority that the white people of America believe they have so little to learn.”
Right now - this very moment - is a perfect time to take a bold step of faith and commitment in doing your part to advance Dr. King’s legacy and dream.Pay What You Can

“What really impacted me was how it was emphasized that racial bias hurts EVERYONE. The fact that white people can go their whole lives without a diverse range of mentors and guides and not realize how tragic that is… I finally have a direction and a plan for how I can contribute to positive change in the difficult and sensitive area of race relations.”

“I always feel a very strong connection to you - your story, your methods, your messages… I have a multi-ethnic family (black ex-husband, multi ethnic daughter, hispanic son trans-racially adopted through foster care). I have been on this journey for a long time and have been struggling with everything that has been happening in the world lately - for so many reasons, but particularly as I help my children process it all. Your messages speak to me and have helped me tremendously. Thank you for your work and for coming into my life at just the moment I needed your message.”
