Conversations about race, racism, racial equity and inclusion can be extremely difficult, especially in multi-racial groups. As renowned activist and author Angela Davis would say, we are in a moment of “radical reckoning” with respect to these matters. White people are waking up to the vast difference in their experience compared to friends, neighbors and co-workers of color. Our histories are different, and our present experiences are different. People are seeing the need to engage in difficult conversations that lead to growth and healing.
Radical Optimist Collective is a diverse team of facilitators and healing practitioners that guide and support individuals and groups in racial awareness and racial healing work by creating space for brave conversations and shared experiences.
