For the past 20 years, Beth has been deeply engaged in racial, disability, LGBTQIA+, and gender justice work, and addressing religious bias. Beth’s work builds capacity to interrupt and address contemporary and legacies of all forms of oppression, always centering racial justice, transformation, and healing. Beth’s research and teaching on the trauma of prejudice and the possibilities of solidarity explores how we can strengthen the capacity of people to engage across power and identity differences.
