Unity360 Race Dialogues
A series of facilitated public forums for Blacks, Whites and Latines to talk personally about racism and white supremacy. The dialogues are based on readings, films, including workshops.
The strategic objectives:
(1) Create an environment of safety to allow for difficult dialogue
(2) Help participants develop a common understanding and vocabulary around white privilege, implicit bias, and systemic/structural racism
(3) Expand understanding of US history, with an emphasis on the painful legacy of racial violence as an impediment to the advancement in PoC.
Awkward Dinners are intended to gather small groups of diners in public or private spaces for facilitated discussions on race. In contrast with our award-winning Unity360 Community Race Dialogues, where we can have from 30 to 70 participants, Awkward Dinners provide a more intimate setting in which to express feelings and be heard, and the chance to learn how to disrupt racism in our daily lives. The “awkward” part comes when participants step outside of their comfort zones to share and learn from diverse perspectives on race.
The bottom line is simple: we want Whites and People of Color to get to know each other personally and use this unique discussion format to test their fears, debunk stereotypes, and develop empathy.
Black History Month
Our programs have become an annual event in Miami Shores with poetry, music, film and art to educate on and honor the contributions of PoC.

We provide training for businesses, organizations, and schools. Our goal is to help you move towards an organizational culture in which all feel included and valued in order to thrive.
