Session Details

Where did we learn about activism? What did the society we grew up in tell us about being an activist? What did our culture teach us about activism? How did our history impact our beliefs? In this Community Garden session, Lana will facilitate reflective prompts that address collective historical experiences and how they influence our perspectives on activism. The intention for this session is to provide a safe and brave space to explore historical wounds and their impact in our roles as activists. At the end of this session, participants will: - Leave with an appreciation of their cultural and historical context - Have a broader perspective on their roles as activists - Reconnect with their ancestors and culture
