Cairo is a 2 year old little boy born in March 2020. His birth came shortly before former police officer Derek Chauvin took a knee and murdered George Floyd. While preparing for a BLM protest, Cairo's family ponders this question: Will Cairo have to protest in his lifetime for the birthright to freely and peacefully exist in the skin in which he was born?

Grab your seat at the table in this 8-week Social Impact Mastermind as we ponder The Cairo Question. Consider this: What if you had the opportunity to impact social change through personal transformation and individual accountability?


A transformational journey such as this is for those who desire a deeper understanding of themselves, connecting to others, and cultivating change from inside out for the purpose of eradicating racism.


It is a powerful journey for individuals who can put their faith in a different future.

The Secret to a Successful Journey is to Start with Conversation

In his book, The Conversation, Robert Livingston describes conversation as one of the most powerful ways to build knowledge, awareness, and empathy to cultivate change.


Conversation includes both seeking and speaking truth to empower knowledge and understanding of racism and to increase confidence and commitment to engage in racial dialogue. 


Conversation becomes a social exchange that dispels the fear that talking about race will only make it worse.


Anita's work also aligns with Livingston's three essential concepts:

  1. Understanding the problem of racism and where it comes from
  2. Caring enough about the problem and the people it harms
  3. Willingly contributing to solve the problem

Activism through Coaching

I designed Activism through Coaching as a means to create a brave space for conversations about racism, personal transformation, and individual accountability.
