Meet Rorri Geller-Mohamed, LCSW
Hi! I’m a consultant and coach with a focus on anti-racism work, equity, diversity, and inclusion. I host the Racially Responsible podcast. My professional background is as a therapist. I’m a licensed clinical social worker. I’m also the founder of U Power Change, a social justice organization with a mission to empower individuals, families, and communities to be the change we need so that together we can build a safe, loving, and inclusive world. At U Power Change, we strive to be an anti-racism, anti-oppression, and liberation focused organization.
A little about me personally, I’m white, my ethnicity is Ashkenazi Jewish, and I grew up in a multiracial family (that was formed through the transracial adoption of my brother). Growing up in a multiracial family and being exposed to racism and racial trauma of loved ones is what initially led me to doing this work. I’m also a wife in an interracial and interfaith (Muslim-Jewish) marriage, and now a mom raising 2 young kids in a multiracial, multicultural, and multifaith family. This work is personal for me.
Professionally, I’ve been doing this work for over 15 years directly with youth, adults, and families in a variety of school, community, and clinical settings as well as working with organizations to create systemic change, strengthen their impact in the community, and advocate for social justice.
I received my Master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University and have post-graduate training in family therapy from the Ackerman Institute. I am also bilingual in Spanish which I learned as an adult.
