Honoring Juneteenth: Love and Justice in the time of Coronavirus

from Sister HaiAn

Sunday, June 14th, 8am-10am Pacific/11am-1pm Eastern

Join Kaira Jewel Lingo and Sr. Hai An in this two-hour, online Zoom event to mindfully honor Juneteenth – the historical moment when Union soldiers announced the end of slavery in Galveston, Texas on June 19, 1865. We will reflect on the history of Juneteenth and the legacy of slavery in light of the pandemic and offer space to grieve the recent murders/lynchings of African Americans. The facilitators are a biracial woman of African descent and a white woman. Through guided meditation and discussion in identity groups, we will practice mindfully opening to our pain so that we may heal our ancestors and ourselves, and move toward compassion and justice for all. 

We welcome people of all racial identities to explore how this historical legacy of slavery and it’s transformation impacts all of us and how we can take part in racial healing. 

Please register in advance using this link so that we can prepare the breakout groups according to your self-identified racial identity. This information will be kept private and used only for the purposes of this call. The call will begin and close together with the middle divide into separate groups for BIPOC and white folks.

The Zoom call information will be sent to you after you register.
