Peace Circle for Racial Healing BIPOC Community time

Healing from the cumulative effects of racism –individual and societal– caused by miseducation, separation, and disunity, is a deep process and needs spaces to heal within races, between races, as well as among the races. Peace circles are a different way of talking about race/ism that is relational, preemptive, and proactive. The circle process taps into both ancient practices and modern processes to create trust and belonging. Healing race/ism is the only way to restore us ALL to our roots of full humanity. Please join Fernell Miller and The Root Of Us for collective healing within the BIPOC Community.
