Gregory Mitchell presents:
“Honoring Ourselves Through Healing: Transforming our Pain Into Our Power”
Date: Thursday, March 8, 2018
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Klingenstein Lounge
“Staying alive is the most important component of any movement focused on combating systemic oppression. Too often, our emotional and physical wellness become sacrificed in movements aimed at resisting these oppressive forces, but this is unsustainable. Building a more equitable and just world will take commitment to healing individually from our emotional distress.”
