Understanding Institutional and Structural Racism Train-the-Trainer Workshop
Tuesday, July 12 – Thursday, July 14

This July, CURE is making our structural racism foundations workshop material available for racial equity practitioners to use within their own organizations, government agencies or consulting practices. Having trained dozens of nonprofits and government agencies in racial justice concepts through our Understanding Institutional and Structural Racism (UISR) workshop, CURE’s train-the-trainer workshop will allow you to train others in building foundational knowledge of institutional and structural racism. After this 3-day virtual workshop, you’ll be able to use our facilitator materials to build supportive spaces for groups to understand how structural racism operates in organizations and in society. 


“Tough and thought-provoking questions, breakout sessions, a thorough training that took the time to allow folks to share and learn.”

Judy Lubin

Dr. Judy is an applied sociologist, racial equity changemaker, yoga and mindfulness practitioner, author, auntie, bestie and beach lover. Judy’s elemental nature is water, and with her she brings calming, reflective energy to hold space for deep listening, inner work and transformative dialogue. 

The curator of the Embodied Justice program, she hosts the accompanying podcast and co-facilitates events and dialogues focused on the collective healing and sustainability of Black changemakers.

At CURE, Dr. Judy has built transformative racial equity frameworks and change management processes that have impacted thousands of lives. She began her career focused on health disparities, recognizing that stress from societal racism can become embodied and manifested through “weathering” that prematurely ages the body and shortens the lifespan of racially marginalized communities. 

She is unapologetically committed to centering Black people and the communities that have inspired her life’s work. The daughter of Haitian immigrants, she grew up in South Florida surrounded by music, her grandmother’s herbal garden, and the struggle to make it in a country that saw her family as outsiders. 

In 2022, after experiencing multiple health emergencies coupled with burnout from the intensity of the “racial reckoning” that increased demand for CURE’s racial equity services, Judy began a process of listening to the wisdom of her body, healing old trauma wounds, and reclaiming rest and her love of mind-body healing. During this time she explored somatics, indigenous and and ancestral healing practices and earned certifications in multiple healing modalities including yoga and energy medicine.

Emerging from a place of rest and listening to what her soul wanted to share, she now weaves mindfulness, body-awareness and spiritual activism to support changemakers and organizations to regenerate their leadership and give to the world from a place of ease and wholeness. 

Long committed to promoting women’s health and wellness, she is the author of The Heart of Living Well: Six Principles for a Life of Health, Beauty and Balance.
