March 03, 2021, 4:00 pm

This closed session aims to create a safe space for BIPOC attendees to explore healing, restoration and community building in the context of antiracism & decolonization work.

As BIPOC folx, how can we create a culture of care and stand in solidarity with one another, while fighting larger forces of oppression?

Join us as we explore and uncover the wide-ranging social impacts of COVID-19. Panels and community dialogue sessions will feature stories, lived experience, arts and culture. This event series will zero in on sexual and gender-based violence, mental health and well-being, anti-racism and decolonization, and what we as individuals and a society can – and should – do in these novel times.
