About

Christopher Coleman is a motivational speaker, life coach, author, D&I expert, the founder/CEO of Unconfined Life Institute and a grassroots activists for social change. His organization, Unconfined Life Institute, is a nonprofit dedicated to leading all people towards a life unconfined to circumstances and situations. Christopher is aware equality is the foundational key needed to live life unconfined. He acknowledges, over the years, the fearless march towards equality has decreased to a slow crawl. He believes society has settled for "fragmented equality;" freedom broken up into different sizes and pieces and distributed by the privileged based on ones social status. Christopher wants us to remember that equality in the U.S. can’t happen by an inward focus. Harriet Tubman had the broad understanding that she wasn’t really free until she did her part to help other slaves find freedom; so she went back. Therefore, Christopher is dedicated to getting out his wheelchair in order to crawl one mile to each of the 27 state lines that were crossed on the path of the Underground Railroad. Some may be able to run, many will walk and a few of us will have to crawl, but together Christopher believes we can reach equality for all! Join Christopher on 1 or more of 27 crawls or state line rallies.

After gaining her freedom, Harriet Tubman, help over 3,000 more slaves out of captivity.By revisiting the Underground Railroad Christopher hopes to remind the citizens of this country that equality for all can only be reached by going back for one another. His mission is to revive the slow crawl to equality back to a fearless march. The decrease in momentum is the result of a self-centered perspective on equality. People of Color, the LGBTQ Community, Individuals with Disabilities, Immigrants, the HIV/AIDS Community, the Low Income Community, the Homeless Community, the Former Correctional Population, the Female Population, People of Faith Population and all their allies has to have a vision for equality beyond their self-interest. We must all come together as grassroots activists to unite in the fight for equality. It's time to combine our passions for equality and resources in order to move towards equality for all.
