“The weekly commitment is important in creating relationships, which in turn fosters trust and helps build community. It empowers participants to share stories and think creatively about how positive societal change can be achieved.

Educational materials are provided along with links to short film clips. Below are the titles of each session:

  • Community Building
  • Why do we need to Heal?
  • What Happened?
  • Who Tells the Story?
  • Checking my Privilege
  • Telling our Stories?
  • What are we Going to Do?

“Maximum in each group is 10-12 participants in order to satisfy social distancing protocols. Please make contact soon to reserve your place. We look forward to hearing from you soon.”
