Healing, (Un)learning, Growing

September 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - November 8, 2020 @ 6:00 pm PDT
Online Event
$45 – $225
title of the program - Healing, (Un)learning, Growing

A 9-week series built on the foundation of the taiko spirit meant to gather, (un)learn, discuss, and move us together towards a more racially equitable world.
“HUG” is a facilitated 9-week series to learn more about the history of racism in the United States, including how racism permeates current systems, institutions and policies. HUG will provide a space to reflect upon White supremacy and anti-Blackness within ourselves, our groups and our community. Using both the “Seeing White” podcast, and selections of works from primarily Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as a framework for our learning, we aim to move the needle (individually and collectively) towards equity, justice, liberation, and action.
