Please sign up below and we will email you the link to join us on the day of the event.
In this free six-week series, participants will read and share their responses to Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad.
During safe discussions facilitated via Zoom, participants be will be invited to share their discoveries with those embarking on the same journey. Using The Circle Way technique, meetings will be conducted to encourage purposeful discussion, attentive listening, and maintain the group's well-being at large.
What does a Circle Way meeting look like? As this is a discussion-based series, each meeting will begin with intention. Participants, including hosts/facilitators, will voice their intentions and purpose for the evening's discussion. As a participant, you agree to speak with intention, listen with attention, contribute to the group's well-being, and pause to regather thoughts, refocus discussion, or take a breath. We look forward to taking this journey with you.
The group will meet virtually on zoom from 10 am - 11:30 am on the following Tuesdays: October 5th October 12th October 19th October 26th November 9th November 16th November 30th. This series is open to adults of all ages and backgrounds. Group size is limited to 12 participants.
