    This is a powerful moment in the history of racial justice in the US. Our collective consciousness is evolving to hold a diversity of realities that includes the pain, suffering and joys of all people. This work starts with ourselves. For more than 25 years, the UNtraining has offered a provocative and compassionate approach to help people discover how to work together in extraordinary ways to end our collusion with all forms of oppression, and to end racism.  Phase One introduces the basic tools and concepts of the UNtraining using experiential exercises, journaling, readings, and group work.
