Additionally, she was recently interviewed by Medium magazine as part of the “5 Steps That Each Of Us Can Take To Proactively Help Heal Our Country” series (read the interview here). Finally, Dr. Booker-Drew was an organizer of Lift Every Voice: The Global Forum on SEL & Antiracism, a virtual conference from the Six Seconds organization on equity, social justice and emotional learning for a shared future.
