Racial Healing Journals
Our Racial Healing Journals are designed to be a safe space and a brave space to process racial trauma and do the quiet, necessary reflective work to advance racial healing. They are a collaborative creation and labor of love of Alina Liao of Zenit; Astrologist, Activist, and Life Coach Tracey L. Rogers; and Kimberly Díaz and Andrew Daub of oneTILT.
About the Creators
Alina Liao (she/her/hers), founder of Zenit. I launched Zenit to be a company that puts our collective wellness first. After the police killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, I saw so many people and companies be vocal about #blacklivesmatter. As I watched, I wondered, what happens next?
As an Asian-American daughter of immigrants, I have experienced racism and xenophobia. At the same time, I have had my own reckoning of racism in our community, and the ways in which Asian-Americans have benefited from and perpetuated white supremacy. It’s intense mental and emotional work to process these dual realities. With this collection, I want to give us all a safe, quiet, behind-the-scenes space to do the reflective work needed to support our individual and collective racial healing.

Kimberly Díaz (she/her/hers), CEO and co-founder of oneTILT, a nonprofit that makes organizations more inclusive one tiny inclusive little thing (oneTILT) at a time. A proud multi-racial latina, I started oneTILT after a decade of nonprofit management & teaching experience in which I felt like I could not bring my true self to work.

I also served as a founding board member of New Leaders Council - Virginia, a nonprofit committed to recruiting and developing the next generation of progressive leaders. I love my dog Mango, los Yankees, and all things Celia Cruz. Follow me at @KimberlyDiaz1 or @one_TILT.
Andrew Daub (he/him/his), COO and co-founder of oneTILT. I move through this world as a white, cisgender, openly gay man eager to collectively reimagine the way we do work so that power is redistributed and everyone can thrive.
