WT Benefit Reflects Core Mission: Community Building through Dialogue about Race

Posted by Lisa Abbott on July 8, 2010

At World Trust, we believe in the power of film and dialogue to enlighten, to educate, and to eliminate racism.  At our annual benefit, Cracking the Codes: A 21st Century Conversation about Race, on June 27, 2010 in Oakland, Ca, everyone who attended experienced the power of our work first hand.  Shakti Butler lead a conversation about race using preview footage of World Trust's current film/dialogue project Cracking the Codes: Race & Relationships in the 21st Century.


Attendees also learned of World Trust's broad impact, with our films and seminars engaging over 50,000 new people in racial justice in 2009 through institutions such as Harvard University's School of Education, Columbia University, the YMCA, and the United Church of Christ.  We also shared our plans for a multi-city, multi-partner launch of the Cracking the Codes project next year.  Thank you to the Oakland Tribune for their coverage of our project. Thank you to everyone who came, offered their generous support and made it such an engaging event.
