Nurturing Justice is a unique organization committed to working in small groups to encourage personal transformation and cultivate cross racial relationships. This happens through the gifted facilitated study of past and continued racism in America. We prepare our participants to investigate and interrogate personal unconscious and conscious biases and the world view that there is a hierarchy of human value in the human family based on skin color and other differences. We encourage our participants to nurture a life-long commitment to anti-racism, education and community building that will reform inequitable systems.
Our Beginning: we started as the first vetted facilitators of the Sacred Conversations to End Racism curriculum created by the National United Church of Christ in 2019. Soon thereafter our work grew after the murder of George Floyd. We worked with groups from as far west as Arizona to as far east as New York. This work bore much fruit as we zoom-toured the country working with both churches and for-profit entities. Nurturing Justice was inspired by the transformative relationships formed while doing this important work. A passion was cultivated to nurture justice through relational transformation.
Today, the work of Nurturing Justice is expanding with more educational forums, additional study and relational groups, opening up opportunities for additional vetted facilitators and those currently in training to work with Nurturing Justice, the creation of a Nurturing Justice youth curriculum for Euro-decedent youth as well as youth of African and Latinx descent. We are venturing into new territories to explore the intersection of racial and reproductive justice. We are providing respite opportunities for justice engaged leaders to rest and rejuvenate.
