Abstract

The National Coalition Building Institute has developed effective models for combating racism and other forms of discrimination by combining methods of individual emotional healing with strategies for community activism. NCBI has built its effective anti-oppression work on two humanistic principles: (1) Care must be given to individuals to heal the past wounds that prevent them from taking effective grassroots leadership; and (2) grassroots political activism, rooted in a spirit of community-based cooperation and teamwork, brings about systemic institutional change.
