"Kina Reed provided excellent and nuanced consulting services to our college ministry intern program as we worked to navigate issues of racism in the church and on campus. I appreciated her creativity, her thoroughness, and her commitment. Her input was invaluable, and contributed immeasurably to the powerful conversations and renewed focus on identifying and dismantling systemic racism in our organization."
