    Dismantling Oppressive Systems

    TooREL Institute for Social Change (TISC) is a collective of subject matter

    experts, strategists, thought leaders, healers and facilitators devoted to dismantling systems and structures that deem some people deserving of a violence-free life, while others are harmed, overlooked, dismissed, and mistreated in their communities and workplaces.

    Addressing Root Causes of Inequity

    TISC goes beyond typical Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) approaches and deepens into a Roots, Equity, and Liberation (REL™) framework. The collective utilizes the REL framework to confront and address root causes of racial inequalities and institutional racism in order to craft culture change plans, that prioritize self-actualization, accountability, healing and wellness as key aspects of achieving sustainable transformation.

    Advancing DEI Approaches by Embedding Equity and Liberation

    Our work is focused on co-creating Black centered environments and workplaces that embed equity and liberation in all policies and practices. DEI approaches are inadequate without the infrastructure and commitment to support and sustain thriving environments for all.

  • Going Beyond Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion to Create Welcoming Environments for All People

    We offer tailored consulting and capacity building support services for nonprofits, government agencies and organizations committed to dismantling unfair practices and systems of oppression in order to create inclusive, equitable and welcoming work environments and communities. We believe that every community and organization have the capacity to create an environment and culture that values diverse backgrounds, perspectives and lived experiences; and every individual has the innate ability to be an active participant in the necessary activities to support that philosophy.


    We meet each client where they are. We listen to our clients’ desires, concerns, challenges, and strengths, and co-create a culture shift plan that reflects their commitment and meet their needs.
