Racial Equity Consultants LLC (REC) aspires to create a world in which each and every human being is seen and valued for who they are and the talents, brilliance and beauty they contribute to the healing of our communities
We begin with an anti-oppression framework vital to developing an in-depth analysis of how racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia became institutionalized and imbedded in dominant culture. This framework helps to highlight the institutional privileges and systemic inequities embedded in the current socio-political conditions that influence and affect our institutions. Through our cross-racial lens, we purposefully and strategically confront the internalized and institutionalized power of race and racism.
REC understands and teaches that while we are not to blame for the current inequities that people of color face, we are responsible for changing the disproportionate social and institutional outcomes of the world in which we live. If we interrogate and transform the institutional policies and practices that continue to exclude and impact people of color and we vigilantly unpack and dismantle the system of racism, we will create an institutional culture in which every community member thrives.
Training is a key part of organizational change work. Training increases awareness, knowledge and communication in an effort to move towards positive cross-cultural communication, challenging institutional racial inequities and changing internal organizational structure. Learning to talk about race and racism constructively within your organization gives members and staff tools and practices for consistently interrupting and counteracting racial bias.
