PROMOTE HEALING. END OPPRESSION. REALIZE JUSTICE.
NCBI Rochester's mission is to eliminate racism and all forms of oppression. A trusted voice in the community for over 30 years, NCBI facilitates leadership development and trainings for diversity, cultural humility, and coalition building in the greater Rochester, NY area.
At National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) Rochester we work from the premise that people are more open to dialogue when they feel valued and appreciated, as opposed to when they are made to feel guilty. Through workshops, small group gatherings, and specially tailored collaborations facilitators create a climate where everyone and every group are welcomed as vital contributors to current issues, whether questioning prevailing norms and beliefs or challenging oppressive systems. NCBI continues to work with not-for-profit, public, business, and community organizations throughout and beyond Rochester
The NCBI Rochester team works to educate and nurture leaders who become powerful cross-cultural allies in eliminating all forms of oppression, be they based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability or any other pretext for mistreatment. We are committed to strengthening the following behaviors throughout our community:
+ Modeling in our individual relationships what we most yearn for in a community;
+ Creating safe space to take risks, listen, and learn from each other;
+ Linking individuals and groups to champion what is best for all;
+ Demonstrating the transformative power of healing, individually and collectively;
+ Breaking the cycle of fear that keeps us from our true selves and from each other;
+ Knowing that we can achieve anything by remembering who we are and what we are capable of becoming.
