We are changemakers, first and foremost. We started with the idea of infusing justice-education and training into classrooms and organizations, but we don't stop there. 

We believe education is the key to a more equitable world. Let us help you design justice-oriented content for your classrooms and institutional initiatives.


We love being team players! Let us join your efforts in creating content that edifies and empowers.
