Transformative Changes is a the community arm of Chlo'e Edwards Consulting Brands. We are a social enterprise with a mission to ignite social and systems change in pursuit of justice and the liberation of humanity. We believe, we, the people, are the change.
We foster change through the transformation of self or individual change, transformation of relationships or interpersonal change, and transformation of community or social and systems change. We implement this through our change brands, WOKE Literacy Institute, Blackity Black 365, and Stay Yoked.
WOKE Literacy Institute is a diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice firm that provides training and consulting to Good Troublemakers looking to ignite radical change in their communities. We believe in putting more tools in the toolboxes of community leaders, advocates, and activists through research-based strategies and concepts that help empower them to combat equity detours and resistance within theirselves, communities, and organizations.
Blackity Black 365 is a social enterprise and cultural empowerment organization cultivating relationships across the DMV area through conversations, blogs, and events that encourage Black people to be Blackity Black year long. To be Blackity Black is unique to an individual, a person's cultural identities, and the way in which they express them. Being Blackity Black 365 days of the year supersedes the 28 days of Black History Month. To be Blackity Black 365 embraces the celebration of Black culture, livelihood, linguistics, history, and resilience indefinitely. Embracing Blackity Blackness de-centers the conditioning of whiteness and embraces a culture of celebration, belonging, self love, collective love, and pride.
Stay Yoked is a wellness and social change organization that empowers community leaders, advocates and activists, youth and young adults, and community serving organizations to pursue inner-healing through the connection of the mind, body, and spirit to seek human liberation. Stay Yoked serves as a vehicle for social change. While our training is youth and young adult specific, we also specialize in workshops for public serving professionals, community leaders, and organizations. We believe that change is contagious, and it must occur externally and internally to pursue human liberation.
