ART AND SOCIAL JUSTICE at the INTERSECTION OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT- The Sojourner Truth African Heritage Museum has invited Sandy Holman to the Capital Region Creative Corps team.

For over 35 years, she has focused on culturally relevant and responsive services, increasing cultural competency and facilitating systemic change. Her new documentary, "The Cost Of Darkness," examines the root causes of systemic inequity for impactful policy development, strategic planning, and interventions.

Sandy founded the Culture C.O.-O.P., an organization she developed to assist people and organizations working with equity/diversity in education, businesses, institutions, and the community. She has served as a consultant to countless organizations, representing a variety of disciplines, locally and nationally, to help meet the needs of diverse/ marginalized populations.

She has also committed to advocacy for youth, education, and holistic change. Her experiences as an equity specialist, educator, program coordinator, counselor, outreach consultant, prevention coordinator, activist, change maker, and author have given her a practitioner's insight into the challenges communities and organizations face that go well beyond theoretical research.

 She has presented to thousands of youth, adults, organizations, and institutions on a variety of topics such as transforming systems, inequitable structures, dismantling racism/ supremacy ideology and practices,  the achievement gap, P-16 education, literacy, resiliency, addressing the whole child, and institutional best practices for change.
