Racial Healing Talking Circle (Focused on MSP officer trials)
May 21 @ 12:00 pm-1:30 pmFree
On May 25, 2020, in the midst of the worst pandemic our world has seen in 100 years, the world watched for over 8 minutes as Mr. George Floyd begged for his life while a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck and 3 other officers assisted with either holding Mr. Floyd down or keeping the growing crowd of concerned citizens from getting too close. Our community was thrust into the spotlight as people near and far took to the streets demanding answers and accountability. Now, almost a year later, the spotlight will be on us as the court trials for those four Minneapolis officers will be live streamed for the world to witness. As a community, how do we come together to process those traumatic events from last year as the world watches our reactions? Peacebuilding’s Coming to the Table (CTTT) Racial Healing Talking Circles will focus on the impacts of Mr. Floyd’s death, discuss the effects of the guilty verdicts against Derek Chauvin and the upcoming trials of the 3 remaining officers, and help participants remain as flexible and resilient as possible throughout the process.
You are also invited to join the CTTT Racial Healing Learning Sessions the 3rd Saturday morning and 4th Monday evening of the month.
