My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for World Trust Educational Services Inc, Oakland, CA, USA
World Trust is an organization that promotes racial equity through film and dialogue. Most recently I saw their film Cracking the Codes: The System of Inequity in Oakland and it was a night I will never forget. Their founder Dr. Shakti Butler put on a beautiful presentation that allowed the FULL theater to begin frank discussions of race and the systems in place that keep us divided. As a white person I find that these conversations usually leave me filled with guilt, denial and apologetic--however Dr. Butler frames the conversation so beautifully that everyone in the room felt comfortable talking about race and connecting with one another's differing experiences. I was so moved by this experience I purchased the film afterwards.
