The Healing Wisdom of Herbs – Update!

We’re excited to share more details on The Healing Wisdom of Herbs, the next session of  our workshop series!

The session will focus on identifying herbs, healthy living, and much more in collaboration with a community garden in Harlem.  The facilitator will be Core Sister Glenda Ullauri, who’s work involves intergenerational programming in urban agriculture and food justice that is guided by the unconditional love for our pachamama and compassion for all living things and ancestors.

This session will be very similar to last summer’s Cultivation Circle, which can you find a clip of below. More details can be found in the flyer below and on the Eventbrite page.

Be sure to reserve your spot at this session here.

We look forward to seeing you!

Much love,
the SCC

The First Line of Defense Is Our Bodies

THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IS OUR BODIES: A WORKSHOP SERIES

Join us for our first ever workshop series!

<><>BACKGROUND<><>
We believe in a holistic health and healing perspective; health and healing is not just about an individuals physical body, but also their mind and spirit in relation to the communities and spaces they find themselves in. In this workshop series we will hold space to talk about self-care, communal care, healthy relationships, and decolonized sisterhood.

Each workshop in the series is focused on a different aspect; communal meals, learning about self-care elements, healing through movement, and storytelling. We aim that all participants will share and create knowledge that deconstructs our current beliefs about health and healing.

<><>DETAILS<><>
All of the workshops are free with an RSVP!
All workshops are for women and girls unless otherwise specified.
We have metrocards available for those in need! Please email us at sisterscirclecollective@gmail.com for details.
Free meals will be provided during the all of the sessions.

Questions? Call: 507-339-4469

#SAYHERNAME – A Vigil in Remembrance of Black Women and Girls Killed by the Police

Wednesday, May 20 at 5:30pm
Union Square (Southside) 

Background: Although Black women are killed, raped and beaten by the police, their experiences are rarely foregrounded in our popular understanding of racialized state violence.

Join us in remembering Black women and girls who have been victimized by the police, but whose experiences are all too often relegated to the margins.

If the loss of their lives matters;
If the grief of their families matters;
If the impunity with which all Black lives can be taken matters;
Then we cannot allow these tragedies to remain unmarked, silenced and forgotten.

This vigil is being held the evening prior to May 21st, a national day of action to end state violence against Black women called by BYP100.

Sponsoring Organizations:
African American Policy Forum
BYP100
Black Lives Matter NYC
Justice League NYC
The Stop Mass Incarceration Network
Stop Patriarchy
One Billion Rising
The Civil Rights Coalition on Police Reform
BK Nation
Judson Memorial Church
