Moving Equity Forward Through Transformative Praxis.
Transformative Praxis Framework™:
The framework we use to describe our approach to social change and liberation is called Transformative Praxis.
Transformative Praxis centers healing justice as a necessary prerequisite for discussion, strategy &/or implementation of activities intended address inclusion/intercultural competence, diversity, equity, and access toward our collective liberation.
