Her mission is to help birth a new world full of empathy and equity. It is going to be uncomfortable and messy, and that's ok! Discomfort is our internal warning sign that something is off, not right. We need to get to a place where letting someone know they're being racist is like telling someone they have lettuce in their teeth. "…hey, oh yeah you, you got a little racism on your cheek there…no, no problem, happy to help. Hope someone would tell me if I was walking around with racism on my face! ". 

Currently, at New Detroit, the nation's oldest racial justice coalition. Rebecca is the Director of Transformational Change. She leads New Detroit's Just Institute's consulting and training services. 

 

Rebecca holds ECOSOC Special Consulting Status at the United Nations with her NGO PEAC Institute, where she is the Co-Founder and Board President. At the United Nations, she is on the Financing for Development Committee and sits on the Working Group on Climate Finance. Rebecca is one of the founding members of the Developing Safe & Civil Schools team, which helped create a new profession within education, the Social Emotional Learning Coordinator. With 18 years in the education sector, Rebecca is an educator and activist who opens spaces of peace and cross-cultural communication worldwide. Her work encompasses the creation of experience-based learning, social skill training, diversity & cultural awareness, and anti-bias/racism & communication training for corporations, organizations, institutions, and governmental groups.
