Advocates of Color Peer Sharing Call Description

2020 and 2021 have brought about the need for rapid changes to our functioning, professionally and personally. Service adaptations have taken a lot of our time, energy, and dedication above and beyond our normal functions.

In addition, Communities of Color are relegated to manage and exist in compounding pandemics; the pandemic of generational and direct lived experience of White Supremacy and racism held within our physical and mental bodies, and the disparate impact of the COVID – 19 pandemic devastating our communities.

Jacquelyn Ogorchukwu writes about how People of Color have been dehumanized for centuries. She continues to say, “When you are able to strip an entire community of its human qualities, it becomes that much easier to neglect the fact that the community experiences pain.” Jacquelyn advocates for holistic healing from racial trauma. This peer support call will provide Advocates of Color space to holistically pause, reflect, share experiences, and create ways to reconnect generationally and heal from trauma, including racial trauma held within our bodies.

A similar Peer Sharing Call is being offered in the morning for any KCSDV Member Program Advocate or Staff. To view the morning Peer Sharing Call session, click here.
