WE ARE LOVED
A VIRTUAL GATHERING TO CENTER, REMEMBER AND EMPOWER
Thursday March 25, 2021 // 6pm CT
Reservations required; limited capacity
Many of us are feeling highly activated as Derek Chauvin’s trial nears. We are replaying traumatic events of the past and bracing ourselves for more injury. Revisiting the details of George Floyd’s tragic murder will be painful. Hearing arguments that attempt to exonerate Derek Chauvin will be painful. We know that we will need extra nurturance, care, and support to be with our feelings, stay healthy, and stay focused on justice. We also know that the work necessary to make our communities more equitable and just extend far beyond this trial.
Thursday March 25, 2021 at 6pm CT, join Penumbra, the Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity, and Maji ya Chai Land Sanctuary for a virtual gathering to remember George Floyd’s life, to open intentional space to grieve and heal, and to ready ourselves for practical action to address ongoing disparity in our midst.
As part of the evening, we will be holding identity-based affinity circles: Black/African Diaspora space, BIPOC space; Mixed Race space; and White Antiracism space ( click here for details). Led by facilitators, these breakout rooms are designed to acknowledge that based on our embodied racial experience, we may need different things at this time. We acknowledge that people of color experiencing racism might need extra nurturance and that many white folks want to continue to learn and be of help at this very sensitive time. Breakout rooms will last 30-minutes and will invite contemplation and conversation toward healing and justice.
