About

Over the last sixteen years in the US, the space for conversation around structural oppression, particularly racism, has shifted significantly.

During this time, Yazmin has engaged in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) spaces across AmeriCorps, media, nonprofits, and academia. Throughout these different institutions, Yazmin employed an intersectional* antiracism lens in her work, research and writing.

Participating in countless conferences, workshops, diversity committees and initiatives, Yazmin found the tendency of diversity trainings to target white people in the room problematic and harmful. This kind of programming and framing failed to take into account the existing racial trauma of Black and non-Black people of color. 

Seeing a need for training, education and support that is intersectional, informed by a deep understanding of history and that centers the lives, experiences and resistance work of Black and Brown people, Yazmin is now offering her services as an anti-racism consultant.

Yazmin’s goal as an anti-racism consultant is to provide more complete and historically informed education and support that centers justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI). Focusing on justice helps move beyond a shallow understanding of DEI and towards reducing harm as a whole, especially for Black and non-Black people of color. 

 

Yazmin’s coaching services focus on the individual journeys everyone has to begin or continue on in order to unlearn the anti-Blackness, racism and internalized white supremacy that we all carry. 

*Referring to Kimberlé Crenshaw’s groundbreaking theory of intersectionality, where the structural oppressions of race, class, gender, sexuality that marginalized people experience happens simultaneously, in a multiplicative way that is impossible to untangle or rank, and makes each type of systemic, institutionalized, structural oppression stronger and more harmful as a result.
