US vs. THEM: The Violence within in Black and White Thinking

The Center for Relational Change is hosting the 2024 “Say Its Name” conference. The theme for the conference is US vs. THEM: The Violence within in Black and White Thinking. The conference will be held on September 21st from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Grayson Community Center. The conference will provide individuals with the option of experiencing the conference in person or virtually.


 For mental health professionals, there will be an opportunity to earn CE’s. 

The conference is open to anyone doing the work and committed to understanding and dismantling White Supremacy and the various systems in place that uphold its power. Our target audience is those interested in learning to think systemically, who desire to be engaged in restorative justice, and who are committed to the liberation of marginalized communities. Individuals at the conference will be invited to engage in complex systemic thinking and introspective work around the ways in which White Supremacy has impacted them personally and in relation to those around them. The conference will continue to include dynamic keynote speakers, workshop presentations, small group processing, and restorative interactive activities.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Say Its Name Conference is to facilitate lasting and impactful change in the continued efforts to dismantle white supremacy; educate about the relational nature of social injustice; empower individuals to understand their relationship to self; invite individuals and communities in their journey to healing past and current wounds by providing space; and foster understanding and intentional connection.

Objectives of 2024 Conference

  • Exploring the impacts of intersectional identities and internalized oppression. 
  • Creating space for thinking critically around issues of societal dissonance and how it shows up within self. 
  • Recognizing binary thinking that creates stigma around conflict. 
  • Redefining conflict as an opportunity for growth and connection.

Books for Bags Spades Tournament

During the summer of 2021, the Center hosted a spades tournament to raise monetary contributions for back-to-school supplies. These supplies were donated to the underserved children and families in the Pittsburgh community. Clinicians and community members gathered for a competitive and lively game of Spades. Notably, the Hardwork Sports & Performance gym, where the tournament was held, matched the Center’s contributions for school supplies. Over $1,000 was raised for the children at Faison Elementary school.

Days of Giving

The Center hosted a Days of Giving event this past December to give back to the Pittsburgh community. The holiday drive benefited the Jubilee Soup Kitchen. The Jubilee Soup Kitchen provides services to those in the Pittsburgh community that are challenged by poverty, joblessness, or homelessness. Donations of dry foods, clothing, toys, outdoor wear, and personal care items were collected by clinicians at both of our locations. The Center’s staff were overwhelmed with donations, as we were able to contribute an abundance of clothes, toiletries, and food for those in the Pittsburgh area. In addition to collecting donations, some of our clinicians also volunteered at the Light of Life Ministries by serving residents at this organization.

At the Center for Relational Change we believe in offering affordable therapy service to the disenfranchised, uninsured, under insured and all who seek treatment. Based on our values of social justice, we provide affordable options to individuals, couples and families who do not have health care or cannot afford the fees associated with their mental health care coverage.

This treatment is provided by an advanced masters level intern(s) under the supervision of our experienced, licensed clinicians. Treatment is provided as a reduced, out of pocket fee of $20 per session.

If you are interested in this treatment option, please contact us at 4412-450-0518.
