Harm, Healing, Heart and Hope: A Community Gathering
**Please register for only ONE of the two dates for this gathering.
Whether we have been on the streets or at home, the protests have touched us. Our colleagues of color are exhausted. Our families and friends are riled.
We are in a historic, nationwide moment that forces us to face the racism that threatens our health and our lives, the uncertainties of a pandemic, and the racial disparities of sickness. We experience this, all while we cannot physically be with those who might embrace us, feed us, and support us.
Please join us for a community gathering to grapple with the enormity of this moment. We will consider the long everydayness of racism, as well as what makes this moment so urgent. We will consider how we might hold rage and compassion at the same time, and how we might approach or recover from - the conversations we are having.
We wont be able to get to all questions or comments, but we will have the chat box going. This session will not be recorded out of respect for the participants. Lets pause together so we can better imagine how to support our colleagues, friends, families and ourselves.
