Racial Justice Strategist & Coach (Consultant)
Erin (she/her/hers) is a lifelong educator and learner deeply committed to the possibilities that equity creates in our world. Erin proudly served NYC young people as a teacher and Restorative Justice Coordinator for 14 years before moving into full-time equity and restorative justice consulting and facilitation in 2015. Currently Erin works on projects around the country training stakeholders from learning institutions, districts, community organizations and companies interested in furthering their equity journey. As a cis, white woman devoted to the ongoing, day-to-day work of undoing racism in herself, her family and her community, Erin advocates for story-telling and deep inquiry as models to re-imagine and recreate our world.
She has written and presented extensively about evaluative measures for restorative practices in schools cited for racial disproportionality. Currently, Erin is the Director of Learning and Design at True North EDI, is a Visiting Professor at the United Nations Mandated University for Peace and works as a Restorative Justice and equity consultant and coach nation-wide.
Leveraging a background in Restorative Justice, Applied Theater, and transformative education, Erin believes that all learning is reciprocal. As such, her workshops and coaching sessions are highly interactive, co-created spaces that uplift joyful inquiry, risk-taking and collaborative systems design.
For fun, Erin enjoys time travel and space exploration via her love of speculative fiction. Erin also loves the outdoors, art, crafting, games and singing with friends and family. She’s also the proud parent of 14-year-old Olive Blue, who will sometimes, in precious surprise moments, play and sing their mom a song on the guitar.
