Common Thread Consulting provides anti-racist training, coaching, and support to school districts, community organizations, non-profits, and businesses to promote equitable policy and practice and build humanizing, affirming cultures. Guided by an intersectional approach to race, class, gender expression, sexual identity and disability status, Common Thread works with clients to develop action plans that reflect organizational goals and community values. 


Common Thread can work with schools to: 


  • Raise anti-racist consciousness among staff and community members.

  • Develop a culturally responsive curriculum in content areas. 

  • Train teachers in culturally responsive instructional practices. 

  • Audit policies and practices that contribute disproportionality in achievement and disciplinary referrals.  

  • Establish equity-focused, anti-racist parent engagement protocols. 

  • Empower BIPOC students in the classroom and community.
