How Survivors of Racism Have Healed Their Wounds

Wednesday, February 16, 2022 | 4:00 - 6:00 P.M. Pacific Time

Survivors of racism in the United States have been telling their stories for centuries. However, they have often not been widely heard or acknowledged outside of their communities. Yet hearing these truths is essential in order to enable healing and change to take place.

In this event, people who have been wounded by racism will share about how their spirituality has helped them find healing. Join us as we hear from compelling storytellers whose personal reflections open a space for deeper exploration and transformative engagement.

Storytellers for this event will be announced soon.

The Guibord Center is an interfaith organization dedicated to opening hearts and minds. IslamiCity is a global Muslim e-community. We together, present this storytelling and conversation series on challenging issues that affect us all. We hope this virtual collaboration will serve as a model of spiritual and interreligious engagement and mutual enrichment that unites our communities in faith and hope for a better world.

All events at The Guibord Center and services provided by IslamiCity are FREE and open to the public. Both organizations are grateful for your donations, which help us to continue this work.

Participation will be limited to the first 100 people that register.

**If you use the Zoom app on your device, you will be required to upgrade to the newest version, 5.0. We encourage you to download and install it at least one day in advance of the event to avoid last-minute problems joining the event.

After you register for this event, we will email you the exact link you can use to join us.

Please note: The keynote storytellers will be recorded, but we will not be recording the stories you share in your small groups/breakout sessions, so feel free to share your own stories related to this topic straight from your heart!
