"I’d been searching for years for writing and strategies for social justice that I could relate to on a spiritual level; you connected those things. There’s a lot of agitation and movement building but we don’t get the time to heal within the community, as friends and partners." — Natalie Sanchez

We come to this work from a deeply personal place.

This work is a part of us. We are not just sharing skills, we are sharing deeply personal parts of ourselves and our experiences.

We have found that in sharing our stories with each other, what seems unique to each of us is actually universal among us.

Something that People of Color often have in common is our propensity to put ourselves second to our community, to family, to others, and before ourselves..

This webinar will shine a light on that tendency so that Black, Brown, and Indigenous People of Color can stay in the racial justice journey by creating stamina and avoiding burnout.

We do Racial Justice differently.

Bending the arc of humanity toward justice is a marathon, not a sprint. Racial Justice from the Heart does racial justice work with an awareness of the long road ahead and the need for self-care along the way. We do this work with compassion for ourselves and the people alongside us.

The philosophy that we use in our training and in working with people is different because it comes from the heart. It is about empathy and love of self because you cannot effectively hear, support, or help people if you can't effectively do those things for yourself.

By and large, we as People of Color don't put our individual selves first. Our life experiences have led us to tend to ourselves second, last, or not at all. Racial Justice from the Heart aims to bring this pattern to a conscious level and help people feel heard, seen, and supported.

This isn’t about self-care for the sake of selfishness.

If you’re like us, you have a desire and a need to serve the community and that can come at a cost.

We’re here to say that you can better serve the community through serving yourself, that to do better for everybody else, you must do better for yourself first.

This work can be exhausting but it doesn’t have to be. This webinar is about teaching practical skills for keeping us energized and whole on the path to liberation.

"Before working with Amanda I felt anxious and unclear about how to begin the work with and for my family. Now I feel encouraged, more clear and excited about next steps. In fact I took a step by talking with my son about it this evening." — Joyce Inspira Williams, African American Counselor, New Jersey

Kristen Mun is Filipina, Chinese, born and raised on the island of Oahu. She moved to the mainland in 2005 to go to school in Oregon. When she first started undergrad, she knew she was different. She knew she would have to explain to classmates that she did not live in a grass shack, or that yes; Hawaii has paved roads. But she wasn't ready for the implicit cues that told her she had to leave her race and her culture behind. She started to change little things about herself to fit in. Her accent faded away, she changed the food she ate, she surrounded herself with Whiteness.

Through her racial justice journey she has rediscovered my self-worth, she has reconnected with her culture, and she has found her voice. As a facilitator with Racial Justice from the HEART, she speaks her truth about what it is like to live as a Asian, Pacific Islander in America. She has learned to love herself, to empower herself, and honor her ancestors.
