HI, I’M JAYA BHUMITRA

I’m a social justice activist who cares a lot about empowering people to fulfill their potential and live their best lives. As part of my quest to live meaningfully and support others, I'm sharing the knowledge I've gained from 20 years of professional lessons via three kinds of opportunities:

Thank you for including me in your journey. I'm happy to be in community with you, creating a better world with you.

ALL THE THINGS I KNOW:

SKILL-SHARING TO BUILD COMMUNITY POWER

Specifically for people who are Black, Indigenous, and others of the global majority (of color), this free, mutual aid program is about leveling up the skills of the racially oppressed in the areas of self-advocacy, management, leadership, and campaigning: skills to balance the scales of power and fuel the social justice revolution.

The first series of this program ran for 12 weeks in the Spring of 2021. The 
2-hour weekly modules were organized in a progression, covering these and other topics:
 

  • Developing Your Inner Activist

  • Campaigning for your cause through grassroots and corporate outreach

  • Writing (press releases, cover letters, etc.)

  • Negotiating, advocating for yourself, and communicating assertively

  • Building an anti-oppressive work culture (and, if necessary, blowing the whistle)

  • Managing people empathically and demonstrating leadership

  • Handling transitions and planning your ideal life
