Why We Do It
Why We Do It
We want to help people to talk about change, and to understand different issues not with criticism but with clarity and knowledge. Where do the issues stem from? How do we go forward in peace? We want everyone to be a little nicer, to be more aware, more productive and more comfortable in their work or school lives.
“Unless someone like you cares an awful lot. Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Our Principles and Passions
If we cannot openly talk about it – we cannot change it. So let’s talk about it. We can facilitate the hard conversations and supply the tools that are necessary to address issues such as racism and ethnicity, sexism (including domestic violence/teen dating violence/sexual assault) and LGBT issues, while addressing the intersectionality of voting, immigration, classism, poverty, and an introduction to white supremacy and white nationalism.
Our founders, Professors Budd and Scillieri, have over 30 years’ experience in teaching Sociology, Political Science, Philosophy, Gender Studies and Media, as well as English through a diverse lens. Professor Scillieri has conducted faculty trainings on LGBT issues and has advocated and spoken worldwide on issues of gender based violence. Professor Scillieri is also a Certified Life Coach. Professor Budd has developed custom operational and training materials for groups and workplaces.
