I have been involved with the Work That Reconnects (WTR) community for over a decade. It is only recently that WTR has examined more deeply how race and culture impacts the Work That Reconnects. In this issue of Deep Times Journal, the editors who are all people of color challenge many of the assumptions that are ingrained in our (white people of privilege) way of thinking that continues to support institutionalized racism and oppression of minority groups. This issue is relevant to any organization that finds itself predominately white and might wonder why people of color are not participating in the organization in any meaningful way.  The journal is not intended to cause shame but to open up dialogue and self-perception on how we might better understand ways to work towards a world of true equality and justice and understand how the colonial mindset is pervasive in our (USA) culture today.
