** If you are already meeting with others to engage in this work, let us know!  We would love to be aware of what is happening in our community, exchange resources and have a stronger network.  

** CALL IN 5 OTHERS to join you!  The more of us there are the stronger we will be to break through the oppressions that bind us all. 

** If you are BIPOC and are interested in joining an affinity group, please reach out and we will support making this happen! 

**A Note on Racial Affinity/Constituency Groups: We are gathering with those that share certain identities and lived experience from a particular vantage point.  In this case, those that have white skin have benefited from this identity and carry certain privileges due to the construction of race in this country.  Therefore, it is vital that in the work of undoing our habits, patterns and traumas and sharing our stories happens in containers to prevent further harm and for BIPOC to have safer spaces to express and share.  

     **STAY TUNED for Part III of this series around Juneteenth: Panel of African American Spiritual Leaders on Reparations and Closing Ceremony where we will commit to move towards racial repair and reconciliation as a community with some clear action steps! 


 If none of these times/dates work, contact wren@chaplaincyinstitute.org and we will do our best to get you in a group!
