In past newsletters we have shared the work of Racial Trauma specialist Resmaa Menakem. In addition to the best selling book, My Grandmother's Hands, Menakem leads workshops and offers online learning experiences centered around Somatic Abolitionism, described as "an embodied anti-racist practice and process of culture building."
Menakem is partnering with Education for Racial Equity to offer an online workshop series to for students to practice the somatic exercises and feel into how racial trauma lives in all of our bodies. Today's action is to consider signing up for one of the 2022 offerings of this workshop, available for a sliding scale or scholarship. If you feel unsure, ask a friend to join you on this learning journey.
