Bio: Meghan Carrier
FACING RACISM FACILITATOR
Meghan Carrier holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Denver with a concentration in community organizing and development. For the past eight years, Meghan has worked as a community organizer with Together Colorado, a state-wide, multi-race, multi-faith grassroots community organizing organization. During her time at Together Colorado, Meghan co-facilitated the organization’s inclusivity committee and now leads the White Caucus for white staff and white lay and clergy leaders. Recently, she co-designed and co-led a four-part webinar series tiled Dismantling White Supremacy with the Faith in Action White Caucus, which she co-leads, for white organizers and staff. Additionally, Meghan has been a co-facilitator for Soul 2 Soul Sisters' Facing Racism sessions since August 2016. In her work as a Facing Racism facilitator, she has found that her journey of undoing the racism inside of her has been strengthened through challenging the anti-blackness messages and practices white supremacy has entangled in her being. Meghan is genuinely committed to working with other white folks in understanding our complicity and skin in the game in order to end white supremacy, while also acknowledging our need for healing from the trauma of being oppressors for generations. Ultimately, Meghan holds deep gratitude for the opportunity to be a co-conspirator with Black Women, while following their profound and wise leadership.
Prior to joining Together Colorado, Meghan served for three years in the Peace Corps in Bangladesh and Morocco teaching English and facilitating youth and community organizing. Meghan values creating space for multi-faith and multiracial dialogue and action. During her time with the Abrahamic Initiative and while serving as the Chair of the Social Action Committee, she lived out this value as she led projects that focused on social action and provided opportunity for dialogue and education between people of diverse backgrounds.
