The Reparations Working Group will be hosting two age-cohort Black Caucus healing spaces for the BYM community. These events are specifically designed to create a respite, space to share thoughts, ideas, and experiences with one another, and a safe space to heal. This caucus will provide a space to understand each of our unique experiences and will help ensure that the Reparations Action Working Group centers Black voices and does its work in an anti-racist way.
The gatherings will be on Thursday, December 10, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. for those born after 1980 and Saturday, December 12, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. for those born before 1980. Please only sign up for one! Ideally, these groups would be divided by age, however if only one date works for you and it does not correspond to your age group, please still sign up.
Anti-racist work is about making space for marginalized groups. This group is for Black Friends and People of Color only. White people may not join this conversation. We will allow all BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) to join us. However, we will center the stories and experiences of Black People.
