On today’s episode, I’m joined by my co-host, Tiffany Ramirez. She serves as the EmpowerOKC Program Manager at Lilyfield. Lilyfield's EmpowerOKC program is designed to transform families and communities into places where children are safe and can thrive.
Tiffany and I are going to interview our guest Malika Cox. She is passionate about criminal justice reform, restorative justice and policy changes that impact marginalized communities. Malika is the Pastor of Spiritual Formation, Justice and Community Life at The Table in Oklahoma City. Malika speaks and teaches on anti-bias, diversity and inclusion, race and reconciliation, and transitional and restorative justice practices.
Before we get to the interview, I want to tell you about Mental Health Association Oklahoma’s new virtual support group, Coping with Trauma from Racial Injustice. It begins June 15. The free virtual support group via Zoom is specifically for people dealing with the trauma and stress related to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and the ongoing crisis in America.
It is facilitated by Carmen White Janak. She is a diversity, equity, and inclusion professional and a non-denominational minister who understands the unique needs of people during this time.
More details are available at mhaok.org/supportgroups.
Ok, let’s get this conversation started.
