In these challenging days and times where harmful patterns and practices around race and racism are increasing the need for action, dialogue, and greater understanding among students across the country, how can students at UNC play a role in advancing faith-based action toward racial justice?  Join Yavilah McCoy for discussion and honest dialogue regarding the power and pitfalls of growing and advancing justice across interracial, intercultural and interfaith differences.  Explore tools for navigating multiple and emerging political and cultural differences and explore strategies for working together and apart toward common goals of greater equity and justice for all.

Yavilah McCoy is the CEO of the international diversity consulting group, VISIONS Inc. in Boston.  She is also the founder of Ayecha, one of the first nonprofit Jewish organizations to provide Jewish Diversity education and advocacy for Jews of Color in the United States. Yavilah is an educator, activist and spiritual teacher that has worked extensively within multi-faith communities to increase racial justice and expand equity and inclusion.  In celebration of the musical traditions passed down to her from three generations of her African-American Jewish family, Yavilah is also the writer, producer and performer for the Jewish Gospel theatrical production “The Colors of Water.”
