Emotional Emancipation Circles are weekly support groups for ALL Black people to come together to process the emotional legacies of enslavement and anti-Black trauma (past and present) with the intention to foster individual and collective healing. THIS IS A BLACK ONLY SPACE.
Facilitated By Erika Totten, Founder, Unchained
In Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles, we come together to:
- *Affirm the humanity of ALL Black people(Women, Girls, Trans, Queer, Gay, Bi, Lesbian, Men, Boys, Immigrant, Differently Abled, Poor...ALL of us)
- Share our stories
- *Deepen our understanding, through an intersectional lens, of the impact of historical forces on our emotional lives, our relationships, and our community
- *Carefully identify internalized white supremacy and the many ways it manifests (i.e. learned helplessness, anti-Blackness, patriarchy, misogynoir, cissexism, homoantagonism, transphobia, etc.)
- Free our minds and spirits from the lie of Black inferiority and heal from the emotional legacies of enslavement and anti-Black racism
** Sliding scale $10-$35 or pay whatever you can. No one turned away (or shamed) for inability to pay.
If you need childcare (free) please email [masked] on the Sunday prior to the circle.
