Essence Learning is founded on the core belief that every human being, including all of our differences, has the initiate right to be respected and heard.
We believe that it is the responsibility of the human race to extend care for the well-being and dignity of those that are oppressed by the systemic racial inequities that are consciously and unconsciously embedded in the thoughts and practices of the American people.
Essence Learning is committed to using our platform and method of influence to bring awareness and education about racism and the disparate impact it has on the lives and wellness of people of color.
We will engage our staff, clients, and communities in interactive discussions that provide current, real-life experiences, and perspectives of Black America.
We will use the power of knowledge to intentionally and purposefully challenge the hearts, minds, and practices that feed the racism that is seeded in our country.
Essence Learning is committed to the long-term work to uproot and eradicate the practices and effects of systemic racism in all of its forms.
We stand with those individuals and organizations that are focused on fair and equitable treatment, that provides access to resources and opportunities that are free from bias, prejudice, and discrimination.
All lives matter, when it is true, that without reservation and with genuine conviction that Black Lives Matter.
