Join us for Transformative Talks, a collaborative virtual space where community experts can come together to connect, share, and uplift.
As we build our multiracial community around mobility justice, we know how important it is to cultivate professional development, provide support to one another, build power, and collectively change the narrative and practices in mobility spaces. Through the next six months, we hope you’ll join us in experimenting with technological tools for creating community online.
To see what works, we are trying out two kinds of Transformative Talks events: webinars and Family T-Time discussion groups. Scroll down for more information.
About Our Webinars
Our monthly Transformative Talks feature invited speakers covering timely topics. These webinars are free and open to the public through Zoom and Facebook. No registration required.
Each webinar takes place on the first Wednesday of the month, usually at 1pm PT | 2pm MT | 3pm CT | 4pm ET.

About Our Family T-Time Discussion Groups
We need to hold space for more intimate conversations where we can express, without fear of judgement or retaliation, the challenges we face in our work and navigating mobility spaces. This is what we hope to create through our Transformative Talks Family T-Time discussion groups. Registration for Family T-Times is capped at 25 people, and as with all Untokening events, our registration process prioritizes people of color and actively encourages other advocates who have felt tokenized — including women, members of the LGBTQX communities and people with disabilities — to attend.
T-Times take place on the third Wednesday of the month at 1pm PT | 2pm MT | 3pm CT | 4pm ET.

Family T-Time: A Resilient Response to Gaslighting
Participants learned how to identify gaslighting, how to respond to it when it happens, and how to be an ally when they see it happening to someone else.
Wed Sep 12 | 4pm ET/ 3pm CT/ 2pm MT/ 1pm PT
Featuring Helen Kim Ho
C0-Facilitated by Adonia Lugo
Our first Family T-Time, A Resilient Response to Gaslighting, was led by Helen Kim Ho, the author of the important and incredibly relevant article, 8 Ways People of Color are Tokenized in Nonprofits. Helen's experience as a first generation Korean immigrant living in the Deep South has informed much of her work. She is an attorney and Founding Partner of HKH Law LLC in Atlanta, where she fights for the rights of workers who have been discriminated against based on their race, national origin, age, disability, and gender. Prior to founding her law practice, Helen dedicated nearly 12 years of her career in the nonprofit sector, culminating in her founding the first civil rights organization dedicated to Asian immigrants and refugees in the South. A sought-out speaker and contributor on issues of racism and diversity in the workplace, she has received numerous awards and recognitions for her leadership. Helen’s work has been covered by the New York Times, the New Republic, Democracy Now!, NPR, Huffington Post and more.
