HOLDING SPACE IN THE WATERSHED
Facilitators: Harold Steward, South Dallas Cultural Center
Keryl McCord, Alternate ROOTS
Katina Parker, Filmmaker/Black Lives Matter Activist
Every generation has its defining moment, when systemic violence – and the people’s response to it – reaches a boiling point. This summer, we’re rising up against police brutality, transphobia, homophobia, Islamaphobia, and political platforms based on violent, divisive rhetoric. This facilitated discussion will hold space for all that is taking place in our country and world right now, in this watershed moment.
