PARTICIPANTS, In their words...

Powerful   Inspiring   Uplifting




Organizations committed to DEI

need to understand race!

Why Race Literacy?

Because for more than 20 years, our race literacy programs have helped organizations and individuals relieve racial stress, and work together toward a better tomorrow. 

Our Vision

An equitable world free
from racism.


Our Mission

To heal racial conditioning through information that leads to transformation.


Racial Equity in DEI

An organization cannot have equity without a deep understanding of race.

Of all the DEI topics, race holds the greatest charge, and is the most difficult for organizations to deal with.

So, how does an organization help employees have better communication about this very important topic?

Race Literacy Monthly

Employees from different industries and backgrounds gather the first Monday of the month to deepen their learning, have powerful conversations, and be coached through difficult experiences. We are creating a community of support, growth, and healing. WATCH VIDEO

What Participants Say …

“I attended 5…”

“I attended 5 of the previous lunch and learns offered by Milagros. Before, I struggled with not feeling like I could have conversations about race because no one in my circle of friends and family really wanted to go 'there.' Now, I feel like there's a way out of institutional and systemic racism. Milagros with her wisdom, compassion, and super smart lessons points the way(s). It is a testament to her gift and leadership to see 400 people gather on a call, of all colors and walks of life, and we learn together as a community. It is the perfect blend upper level and down to earth conversation, so necessary for a topic that is so hard to confront. Thank you, Milagros.” Jenn P.


“As a Canadian Black woman…”

When George Floyd was murdered, I tried to ignore the deep discomfort and pain I was feeling. To pretend that this level of ongoing violence was not part of my world as a Canadian Black woman. Unfortunately, it is and it stirred deep within me all of the pain I have experienced being born and raised in a country that takes pride in being open-minded and multicultural but that hides subtle acts of racism and micro-aggressions. When I finally decided to attend one of Milagros' "Healing from Racial Trauma" workshops, I was faced with a solution to the uprise that was happening in the world around me.  I would highly recommend these workshops for anyone who has been affected by racism or who wants to find ways to navigate the current climate powerfully.
