Upcoming events (2)
You are invited to a powerful climate change discussion by Extinction Rebellion America who will present a workshop entitled: Heading for Extinction and What To Do About It. The first thirty minutes provide an overview of the most recent climate science findings, with an emphasis on the fact that planetary warming is no longer an “environmental” issue, but an accelerating progression of interrelated crisis that if unchecked, will lead to human extinction. The second half of the workshop includes a discussion about “how did we get here” and an interactive presentation of Extinction Rebellion’s unique vision for change, which includes nonviolent civil disobedience and a re-invigoration of democracy through citizens’ assemblies. The presenters will be available at the conclusion of the workshop to answer any questions. This event is free! After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
“There is no social change fairy. There is only the change made by the hands of individuals.” Winona LaDuke • Are you ready to be the change? • Do you understand privilege? Know how to leverage it? • Do you want to help confront systemic racism? • Do you long to participate in collective healing with those on the same path? We invite you to join our dynamic community and learn practical action steps from Dr. Singh to help: • navigate daily and past experiences of racism, • challenge internalized negative messages and privileges, • handle feelings of stress, shame, and trauma, • and begin to heal. Most of our work will be based on the text "The Racial Healing Handbook” written by Dr. Singh. Along your journey you will gain tools to develop profound racial consciousness and conscientiousness and begin the healing from grief and trauma. Through this healing community, you will acquire the building blocks to heal in a world still filled with racial microaggressions and discrimination. This is a 10-week course on Zoom from February 9th to April 20th. To meet the facilitators, ask questions, and learn more about the class, you can attend an optional orientation on February 3rd from 6-7 p.m. To register for the class, please go to www.csasacramento.org and scroll down the home page.
