Coming to the Table racial healing talking circle-Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute

Sumner Library, 611 Van White Memorial Blvd., Minneapolis, MN 55411

Coming to the Table (CTTT) free, monthly racial healing talking circles address interpersonal, community, and structural racial violence and trauma. At CTTT, descendants of those who were enslaved, descendants of slave owners, indigenous community members, and all those interested in engaging in safe constructive dialogue, are invited to come together to envision Minneapolis as a just and truthful community – one that acknowledges and seeks to heal the racial wounds from the historical trauma of slavery, genocide of Native Americans, and the racism these collective traumas continue to spawn. CTTT provides ongoing relationship engagement, leadership, resources, and a supportive environment to dismantle racism. Pre-registration required at: https://cttt-northmpls.eventbrite.com
