MNAPABA sponsored event: The following is a series of program sessions aimed towards helping legal professionals process the recent events in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder and prepare for next steps towards combating racial injustice.
Twin Cities Diversity in Practice Healing with Intent Series
Our community is still processing the grief and trauma of witnessing the murder of George Floyd and the others before him throughout the country. As we continue to show up at work and take on the work of racial justice, it’s important to pause. We care deeply about you and your wellbeing. That is why, in the coming weeks, we are offering space for processing the events that have taken place. Abdul M. Omari, PhD in partnership with Jamil Stamschror-Lott will facilitate the conversations. The programs will have a special focus on supporting Black and people of color who work in predominately white spaces. The program will also focus on helping white allies understand the nature of the trauma that is felt by the community of color in times like these.
We are offering multiple small group sessions of 25 participants each – please see the registration page for details. Based on attorneys self-identification, they are welcome to register for the session that suits their needs. Please share this event with attorneys at your organization who may be interested as soon as you are able.
