About

Our History

WE BELIEVE IN A WORLD WHERE ALL PEOPLE FLOURISH

UNDIVIDED formally began its work in 2016. While our personal stories vary, the thread that ties us together is a collective of people who have roots in the American Evangelical church and are troubled by the racial harm and injustices we see today.

Together, we saw the gap in book studies and DEI trainings that have limited lasting impact and often cause harm. With our diverse, collective expertise, our team has built experiential programming designed to take businesses, organizations, and churches from isolation into community and from inertia to action. The experiences bring people together to learn from each other with honesty, integrity, and vulnerability, moving them toward awareness, through agitation, and into action.

We believe in a world where all people flourish, and human dignity is a gift we all enjoy. We’re creative and forward-thinking while remaining rooted in the spiritual heritage of hopeful historical movements for freedom and justice. So let’s do more than listen and learn. Let’s invite communities to repair racial harm, heal racial trauma, and realize racial equity.
Let’s be UNDIVIDED!
