Most people want equality, to be an ally, to improve the world, and make things a little more just - the only problem is that it is very hard. Rebecca Brown Adelman and Trent Norman created Affinity Arts Consulting to give people the ability to practice social justice, difficult conversations, and real interactions with complex topics so we can all be a little more comfortable making the world a better place.
They share tips and stories about the ongoing process of improving ourselves and working to get it right, and how to access the practice and courage it takes to do the work of equality.
