Tasha is a bridge-builder, reconciler and a compelling voice in the fight for racial justice. When she speaks, she expresses a passion for social justice issues across the globe. At the heart of this incredible woman, Tasha uses her platform to encourage racial reconciliation among all ethnicities, to promote racial solidarity in America, and to develop others to do the same.
With a Master's in Business, she educates on disparities and injustices and creates spaces for positive dialogue around racialization. A gifted speaker, Tasha travels the country challenging audiences everywhere to step outside their known, safe worlds in order to connect with others who are different from themselves, changing the world one dinner table at a time. She has simultaneously cultivated "Be the Bridge," a non-profit ministry to equip and provide tools for those who are actively involved in taking the next steps toward racial reconciliation.
When not captivating audiences with her dynamic presentations and conscious raising workshops, Tasha can be found exploring her hometown of Austin, Texas, drinking tea, laughing with friends, viewing Christmas movies and listening to Christmas music all year long!
