Acasia Olson is a social justice advocate, speaker, writer, public health professional and founder/visionary of EmbRace Healing, a national campaign to promote racial healing and reconciliation. Her passion for health equity and social justice motivates her to lead and support a variety of local, state and national efforts to reduce health disparities.

Most recently, she participated in the 2014 Millennial Trains Project where she organized and led community peacemaking conversations across the U.S. to discuss Race in America and the importance of healing, reconciliation and building interracial trust. She enjoys learning from others, growing old with her husband and when she’s not reading or building movements for positive social change you can find her traveling via plane, train, automobile or commuter ferry.
