Recent events of unprovoked killings of Black people have understandably reinforced feelings of fear, anger, and systemic and racially-motivated injustice in our communities. The deaths of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, KY, Tony McDade in Tallahassee, FL, and George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN, mirror countless previous incidents where police officers have seriously injured, used unnecessary force, or killed unarmed Black people. This systemic violence has continued recently with law enforcement’s brutality against peaceful protesters all over the country. We recognize these incidents and images on social media and news highlighting ongoing violence may trigger significant emotional distress.
This Group Listening Circle is for Students who identify as part of the Black community. This group will provide a space to discuss and process some of the recent as well as historical events of racial injustice in the U.S. and the personal effects on you and your community. Facilitated by Dominique Walker, M.A. (PhD Student in MFT). Group Listen Circle will be held via Zoom. Please email Shaelise for log in information. This group meets every other Tuesday from 3 pm to 4 pm.
