Ep. 235: Rorri Geller-Mohamed created U Power Change for families who are navigating some super challenging stuff.  She used her professional background as a therapist to develop U Power Change but raising a multiracial family is also very personal to her. Having grown up in a multiracial family that was formed through adoption when her Mexican-American brother joined her family and now as a white mom raising children in a multiracial, multicultural, and multifaith family, after marrying her husband who is Guyanese, she is extremely passionate about helping our children to feel supported in their identity and thrive.

Professionally, she's been doing this work for over 15 years with youth, parents, and families in a variety of school, community, and clinical settings. For her, it always goes beyond just working with families, as she sees it as a necessity to advocate for racial and social justice often by working with leadership and organizations to create systemic change. 

Her dream is that the next generation can thrive in a safe, equitable, and inclusive world. As a white person, she also believes it is part of her responsibility to reach out, support, and organize to bring more white people into anti-racism and racial equity work. She received her Masters degree in Social Work from Columbia University and have post graduate training in family therapy from the Ackerman Institute.
