Race & Identity
One-on-One & Group Coaching

Leaf Pattern Design

Small group and one-on-one coaching provides a space for individuals to express challenges, blockages and difficulties they are experiencing navigating antiblack spaces and environments in their respective professional and personal sectors and industries and access the framework, tools and language in how to disrupt and transform, starting where they are. This is a liberatory space with the aim of integrating and incorporating holistic anti-racist humane approaches in race and identity that center reflection, repair, accountability and responsibility that informs praxis. Deep reflection and action are key to these coaching sessions. Participants would fill out a form with certain pressing questions or queries that will guide the sessions. 

Testimonials

from our virtual classes & workshops

“The content was incredible, and the vibe of the whole thing felt so engaging and open.”

Katherine,
Participant in Black Latin American & Contemporary Topics Course

“Both of yall are really such incredible facilitators and such a beautiful example of the value of lived experience, period. You both speak from the heart because y'all are speaking on stuff that you didn't just read about but that you live, and that will always hold greater weight than anyone coming through with just academic understanding and no lived experience so thank you both for sharing very personal experiences and learnings based on that as well as also giving us great historical context to pair with real shit!”

"The assignment & the documentary was EYE-OPENING. The combination of presentation of info, offerings/observations from facilitators & participants was great. I appreciated the push to have is us dig deeper. I loved the knowledge, brilliance, generosity of the facilitators."

"Everything worked honestly!

You have created a great ecosystem of learning in this workshop."

Lola,
Participant in Black Latin American & Contemporary Topics Course

"I really enjoyed the inclusion of Central America and I knew of Afro Caribbean migration there but not the extent and depth covered. Coming from a neighboring nation where we don't learn that. Also the showcasing of those anti-Black image shaping imperialism in the region was also enlightening and visually striking. Over all really enjoyed it, and will recommend to my networks who sorely need it."

Daniel,
Participant in Black Latin American & Contemporary Topics Course

"Wonderful and powerful facilitation, insightful shares through story telling, joy and humor. Great pre-work so that we can show up with some baseline. Thank you for the powerpoint, the historical societal context. Thank you deeply for your emotional labor.""

Participant in AntiBlackness in the Latine Community Course

"I thoroughly enjoyed and have a page full of notes. Thank you for the enrichment. There were parts that brought tears to my eyes. Thank you, very much."

Ronetta,
Participant in Black Latin American & Contemporary Topics Course

"It was well done! I loved it. Dash and Javier did a good job explaining why mestizaje and latinidad are a white supremacist constructs meant to marginalize Black, Black-Indigenous and Indigenous communities in our home countries and how its intended purpose to erase and homogenous our experiences are still happening to this day."

Lisette,
Participant in Black Latin American & Contemporary Topics Course

"The humor, joy, the invitation for folks to share aloud, highlighting what was said in the chat, the chemistry between the facilitators, the timing, the breaks, the pace, the humanity!"
