Race isn’t real but racism has real-world consequences. We can’t realize our fullest human potential in a broken world. Our lives are interconnected and our collective trauma requires collective solutions. It’s time to heal the conditions, the traumas, and the systems of racism in order to reach our highest selves. Our show talks to the teachers, thinkers, healers and evolutionaries who are inviting us all to become the architects of the process of racial healing. Hosts Aliah MaJon, Joy Donnell, and Nick Mattos guide listeners into the heart of why our divides exist and how we can begin to build a restorative culture.“This podcast is an invitation to all those who are willing to take this journey and be architects of the process of racial healing. Evolution is a stretch, but our convictions matter.” — Aliah MaJon

    Honoring Race with Dr, Joely Proudfit

    November marks Indigenous Heritage Month in the United States but a majority of Americans still remain unaware of the reverberating trauma Indigenous people have suffered in the past and still endure today. "Honoring Race" is a special episode of Shift's Liberating Race podcast in which we make a humble contribution to this vital and necessary conversation. Special guest Dr. Joely Proudfit joins our hosts Aliah MaJon, Joy Donnell, and Nick Mattos to discuss land, America's complex founding, and the rich restorative opportunities that present when we maintain Native American futures as intrinsic to our global future.
