About the event

Racial Equity & Liberation (RE&L) Presents: RE&L Basics: Equity & Practice (July 27th

8am-3pm PT | 9am-4pm MST | 10am-5pm CT | 11am-6pm ET)  - A practice space to learn, discuss, and embody the basics of equity and liberation with an intersectional (race AND) analysis. This space might be most nourishing for folks involved in justice work who are newer community organizers, activists, and non-profit workers, or movement folks who want to practice integrating equity into their organizing efforts. We will sharpen our collective analysis, and engage liberatory practices and deep reflection. 

During our time together we will focus on: 

  1. Practices that support relationship building
  2. Developing an understanding of our historical context
  3. Building a collective analysis through developing shared Language
  4. Embodying equity through Liberatory practices such as storytelling and community care


* Confirmation of your participation will be communicated after review of your registration. If for some reason your registration is not accepted at this time, a full refund will be issued.

* An overview of what to expect, required pre-work materials, and additional logistical information will be provided roughly 10 days prior to the workshop.

* Attending the full day workshop is a requirement to attend and unreasonably late arrival may result in not being admitted.

Your Facilitators

Rachael Ibrahim (she/her), MSW, is a black Nigerian US born mixed-race cis woman living in NYC and was raised in the Midwest in a white Lebanese family. Through activism, organizing, art and enthusiasm, Rachael passionately works across movements and socio-political priorities to center a transformational, healing, and intersectional racial equity framework. She has been an organizer with the Venceremos Brigade, an anti-imperialist Cuba solidarity work project since 2007. She is the co-creator of Racial Equity & Liberation (RE&L) since 2010. In 2014 Rachael convened a healing space called the Black Mixed-Race Collective (BMRC) where community members commit to address anti-blackness and white supremacy culture within the dynamics of mixed-race identity. Rachael is a base builder and coach with a  passion for process design, and a commitment to deep praxis that nurtures healthy movement cultures.

Heidi Maria Lopez (she her, ella, elle, they), is a black queer first generation Dominicana mama. Born and raised in New York City. She lives this work of equity and liberation through organizing and loving up on her own people to face our inner oppression, superiority, and power to resist and heal. Heidi creates Love Healing and Liberation by curating experiences that support reflection, connection, healing and joy for the purpose of releasing trauma and living liberation NOW! She builds relationships that create transformational organizing so that people of color, particularly those most impacted by systems of violence, take back what has been taken from us, (re)claim our history, and build our futures. They learned this work by experiencing it through their mother who created home as sanctuary even in the midst of storms. She has been doing this work of racial equity, liberation and healing for a decade by conducting workshops, creating gatherings, writing and making medicine for a variety of organizations, groups, communities, people and her-self/cells. She/they honor, give gratitude and praise for all the sacrifices made from all people, places and things so she gets to do this work in the world.
