At Drakes and Burton Consulting, we are looking to the past to help build a better future. Our tools for instituting positive change are education and facilitation: powerful strategies for promoting anti-racist action among individuals and systems. We strive for maximum impact and are passionate about working with influencers: we want to reach people who reach people, from teachers to doctors to organizational leaders. 


Since 2016, Aqua Drakes and Katie Burton have worked together to imagine new possibilities for racial justice. To learn more about how we can help you in your path toward racial equity, contact us!
