Together, we resist by fostering spaces of healing.
We have shifted the dialogue to the ways that white supremacy manifests as internal suffering -- suffering that many go through in silence and shame. Shame about who we are (or aren’t) and what we do (or don’t do). We have resisted by beginning to ask and answer the question: what could the world be if we all shifted the focus to building spaces of healing and restoration for us? We have resisted by creating spaces where we can speak about our trauma, if only with ourselves. We have resisted by choosing to love. We have resisted by creating and expressing.
A series of workshops to explore internal shame, violence, & oppression and it's impact on our lives.
We have often been made to feel ashamed to say out loud. We will explore the things that make us feel messy and unworthy. The things that we do (or wish to do) to honor ourselves in those moments. And, the things that we do as intentional (or unintentional) acts of resistance. To be Black, queer, and trans and to choose life is an act of resistance. To take space to explore internal shame is an act of resistance. To affirm your truth is an act of resistance. And, we cannot do this in a vacuum.
Thank you to my love, partner, and best friend, Joy KMT -- without you pushing me to take my own medicine and invest in my healing this would not exist.
