Sessions will be facilitated by Sun Yung Shin, a Korean immigrant who grew up in the Chicago area and who now makes her home in Minneapolis. She is an anti-racism consultant, poet, writer, and bodyworker who focuses her work through the lenses of justice, repair, and healing.

Her popular anthology A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota with the Minnesota Historical Society Press has been taught widely throughout Minnesota in educational and community settings.

She holds a B.A. in English from Macalester College, an M.A.T. in Teaching from the University of St. Thomas, and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing and Poetics from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Her community-based training includes racial justice facilitation, restorative justice, conflict resolution, labor organizing, and she is newly studying anti-capitalist permaculture and somatic abolitionism.
