Date: Wednesday, June 17th (Part 1); Wednesday, June 24th (Part 2)
Time: 7:00-9:15pm (slight time change, sorry!)

Looking for a space to brainstorm how to be in this new moment? Been sidelined or isolated by COVID and wanting to (re-)engage and connect? Thirsty for discerning conversation about how to respond to the anti-Black and racial injustice and climate emergency realities, within a time of COVID?
Join XR in a facilitated community space to share ideas for shaping messages, taking action in solidarity, and hearing de-escalation techniques.
We'll explore how to act through the lens of our fourth demand: “We demand a just transition that prioritizes the most vulnerable people and indigenous sovereignty; establishes reparations and remediation led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, people of color and poor communities for years of environmental injustice, establishes legal rights for ecosystems to thrive and regenerate in perpetuity, and repairs the effects of ongoing ecocide to prevent extinction of human and all species, in order to maintain a livable, just planet for all.”
"things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered. we must hold each other tight & continue to pull back the veil. #blacklivesmatter" - Adrienne Maree Brown
