Description

SAFE BLACK SPACE: A Community Healing Circle By and For People of African Ancestry to Promote Community and Personal Healing

Racially, these are trying times that weigh on our hearts, minds, and spirits. For Black people in particular, incident after incident, including the killing of Stephon Clark, along with constant negative social media, witnessing the pain, anguish, loss of life, and managing personal fears for the safety and well being of our families and communities can cause race-based stress and trauma. Self-care is absolutely essential in times of racial stress and anxiety and so is community-care.

Coming together in community can provide some sense of safety in this increasingly hostile world. This healing circle creates a safe space in which Black people can unburden themselves; share their feelings, concerns, fears, and hopes; understand the root causes of their challenges; and work on personal and community healing. It provides strength for the journey ahead and is a visible sign of our turning to each other for comfort, support, wisdom, and love; a sign of our commitment to take care of ourselves and each other.

If you identify as a person of African ancestry and have been impacted by racial stress and trauma register for this FREE event. Join community members, local African American mental health providers, faith leaders from Sacramento Area Congregations Together, educators and others at this Safe Black Space Community Healing Circle designed by us and for us.

This Safe Black Space Community Healing Circle is hosted by UC Davis Health African American Faculty and Staff Association (AAFSA) and sponsored by The California Endowment and The Sierra Health Foundation.
