Generation Rebel Talks: Radical Self-Care: Pour Some Love Into Us
Due to COVID-19 this is an online virtual event. See below to join.
Friday, October 2nd from 3 to 4 PM
Amidst a perfect storm of COVID-19 & state sanctioned violence, perhaps to be Black and Brown and queer in America in 2020 is to be in a constant state of mourning. But what if we challenged that notion? What if we had the audacity to also reach for love & joy?
In collaboration with GRIOT Circle and Cumbe Dance, Brooklyn Community Pride Center invites you to join us for the second round of Generation Rebel Talks, a three part series of intergenerational conversations celebrating love as the ultimate revolutionary act. Together, let’s nourish ourselves, nourish our community and organize ourselves to build the world we want to live in.
Black Therapist & Mental Health Advocate Mikah Maly-Karros envisions self-care as being about community. Here she is on how we take care of ourselves in the midst of world-shaking events:
“I think it’s going to be a lot about us creating spaces where we can come together and either just laugh and have fun and dance and enjoy life the way that we do, and have a space to escape and forget and feel loved.”
Let’s gather around the “kitchen table” and talk strategy around radically caring for each other. Let’s pour some love and joy into our community to fortify ourselves for what could be an intense rest of the year with a potential second wave of Covid-19 and an intense election season. For if we can’t show up for each other, how can we show up as change makers in the world?
