Starting With the Self
Play • 1 hr 1 min


The audience will get tools to identify symptoms of racism within themselves as a prerequisite to challenging harmful ideologies externally. Listeners will gain a more thorough understanding of the various ways racism presents itself, and how they can use their individual power to disrupt patterns of inequity.


Rev. Dr. TLC will be joined by Waleska Lugo-DeJesús, CEO of Inclusive Strategies to talk about Racial Healing as a process to learn our truth first and then understand others. How can we use our lived experiences to dismantle racism, stand in our power, educate, and be a disruptor for change? 

Lugo-DeJesús will use the four forms of racism: Internalized Racism, Interpersonal Racism, Institutional Racism, and Systemic Racism as the foundation to describe the intersectionality of systems of oppression with a human-centered approach. Lugo-DeJesús will inspire healing to promote equitable environments and communities for all.
