“Cultures Connecting has been instrumental in helping our Race and Social Justice Committee successfully address challenging situations as we focus our mission within the Seattle Housing Authority’s Community Service Division. They led our committee volunteers through a strategic planning process in which we created a clear plan of action as well as a more productive committee process. As one of the volunteer co-facilitators of our Race and Social Justice Committee, I greatly appreciate the ongoing guidance and support through the difficult work of social change within a large organization.”
