Testimonials from past participants:

“Even as a life-long liberal, I learned a great deal about privilege and systemic racism and how they impact people of color on a daily basis. I got to see and understand how everything we say and do can unknowingly hurt others. It has shown me how we need to overcome our fears, and engage the world more fully, acting out of love and understanding… everyone, however enlightened they think they are, could benefit from this workshop.”

“You will be blown away by the subconscious messages we all keep in our heads… it is a life-changing experience and I recommend that you sign up for it as soon as possible.”
