Kris's Racial Justice Journey:
About 3 years ago, Kris began a personal journey to unpack and understand her personal relationship with white privilege and implicit bias, and set herself on a path to help other white Americans of European descent to the same, and further, to declare themselves to be anti-racists, not only in self identification, but in determined and focused action. Since then she has developed an online implicit bias training entitled Intro to Power, Privilege, and Leadership for white people who are beginning their own journeys. Kris is an active member of the Lancaster Be the Bridge group, is a member of Lancaster Stands Up, and the NAACP. She has developed and facilitates Racial Justice Small Groups for the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Lancaster. And she is currently engaged in a 10-month "Racial Healing and Wellness Coaching Program" to continue to focus her growth, learning, and actions on eradicating racial injustice and creating equity and safety in all spaces within her sphere of influence.
