Racial Healing and Renewal Cohort: Session 4
with Robert Nelson and Kendra Toth
This four-session program is based on building the capacity for trusting relationships by analyzing our individual identities within the context of the history of oppression. Healing is a revolutionary act. Honoring lessons from elders in the justice movement, it is imperative that we no longer perpetuate the grinding style of activism that replicates the same exploitative practices on our bodies, minds, and hearts. Healing involves stopping the production of social justice and to holistically understand personal proximity to power allows for real healing.

How do you make each dollar go as far as possible while still making sure you’re paying fairly and equitably? How do you hire to build a diverse staff, stay in compliance with all laws, and make sure you’re hiring the best person for the job?
