What Just Happened? Race, Politics and Our Way Forward.
At rapid speed, the COVID-19 virus has unapologetically infected and killed millions of people from diverse cultures and faith backgrounds around the world. At that same pace, hate and distrust among and between America’s people and its’ government has escalated to a point of protests, violence and a deep racial divide.
The U.S. elections are a few short weeks away. We are scheduling The People’s Gathering (Emergency Convening) in anticipation that this will be an important time for us to be organized in conversation as a community. Regardless of the election outcome, we predict that our community will NEED a supportive space to talk, listen and to heal. Please join us!
