None of us is stronger than all of us.

Many of us are thinking, “I want to make a difference but I don’t know how.” How can we gather and organize to amplify our power for healing and positive change? We invite you to attend a Virtual Town Hall on Thursday June 4th with the theme “Healing & Action.”

The intention is to bring our passion together to help heal our nation and idenitfy actionable steps we can take to put a stop to the epidemic of racist violence perpetrated by systemic police brutality.

In the theme of “Healing and Action” we invite you to come prepared with ideas, experiences, and reflections that can advance the intention. Please direct message to Michael & Lara Blackin ahead of time if you want to be included in the roster of speakers. Everyone is welcome to participate whether they are speakers or not.

We invite you to join us on Thursday evening, June 4th at 7:30 EST for the following:
– Meditate together to enhance healing
– Speakers share ideas, experiences, reflections
– Narrow the conversation to specify 3-5 top actions
– Identify next steps to move forward on actions and stay connected.
