JOIN US FOR AN AFTERNOON OF AWARENESS!
YWCA is excited to be partnering with Dr. Jennifer Hernandez to present our FINAL awareness session on March 6, 2021. The virtual event will begin at 2p.m.
As a community we will come together to learn what racism is, how it is present in our community, and ways to eliminate racism. These sessions provide a safe space for participants to ask questions and share viewpoints with the intent of support racial healing.In this program we will explore how bias looks within our culture and engage in activities that create interactive responses on how to address systemic bias.
Awareness Sessions are programs made possible through the Healing Illinois grant.
JOIN US FOR AN AFTERNOON OF UNITY!
YWCA is excited to be partnering with Nana Beacoat to present our FINAL CommUNITY Circle session on March 6 via Zoom. The virtual event will begin at 2p.m.
CommUNITY Circles are a series of sessions where we discuss cultural identities, hidden biases, micro aggressions, and current harms inflicted upon communities of color and how to take steps to eliminate racism. This session they will be structuring the conversation around the ideas in My Grandmother’s Hands: Radicalized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem.
Every session presents an opportunity to pause, process, and proceed in the quest for racial healing, justice, and equity. The first 20 registrants will receive a copy of the book for free!
