Join SCG on the 2021 National Day of Racial Healing for a virtual experience centering and uplifting the practices and knowledge of Black femmes. Lively conversations and workshops will guide us to remember, reciprocate, and reconnect with the gentle wisdom of nature.

The National Day of Racial Healing was established in 2017 as an annual convening of activists, artists, healers, changemakers, and community members that come together for dialogue and action towards much needed and long overdue racial healing in this nation.


Part 2: Emergent Strategy Ideation Workshop

Our second part of the 2021 National Day of Racial Healing focuses on the reciprocation and exchange of wisdom. This interactive workshop will introduce concepts from adrienne maree brown's book, Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds. Participants will learn the principles that allow us to harness the power of change: adaptation, interdependence, collaborative ideation, transformative justice, and resilience through decentralization. This session will be dynamic and responsive while engaging bravery and conflict generatively. By exploring vulnerability and imagination practices, we can begin to create a future — beyond competition, binaries, linear, and short-term outcomes — and strengthen our commitment to a world that can hold each of us in a state of care, skill, and grace.
