Featured Field: Intercultural Development

Nathan Distelhorst

I was the sole staff for a demonstration project in Seattle (1 of 4 around the nation) dedicated to effectively address/confront the issue of racism in multiple institutions in the community.  I worked for and with a board of directors, comprised of some of Seattle's more prominent leadership, and with community leaders also comprised of Seattle's more prominent leadership (though not paid).  My assignment was to support and promote the Anti-racism Training Institute in all aspects of its mission and vision logistically and well beyond, in the hopes of helping to foster a more equitable society for all, with particular focus on issues of race and race relations.
