Are you looking for new ways to help people who are different from one another talk about racism and then figure out what to do together? Have you ever been leading a group and been stopped in your tracks by someone’s comment or question?

Nonprofit professionals often find themselves frustrated by the way the public thinks and talks about the issues they care about. That broad public conversation — also called the public narrative — shapes the way our audiences consider the problems we seek to solve, and the solutions we propose to solve them. Shifting that narrative to one that is more complete, productive, or just plain accurate can be a bewildering prospect for any advocate.
