MWM TRA/TNA Dialogue: Unpacking & Claiming Our Collective Safety
Time & Location
About the Event
The MidWest Mixed Transracial/Transnational Adoptee Dialogues will meet four times this year. Our first offering is this month, on Saturday, May 22nd, from 3-5pm.
We will meet in-person at Hidden Falls in St. Paul, MN. Exact location will be sent 24 hours before the meeting. In order to continue to follow Covid-19 protocols with an abundance of safety, plan to wear a mask and create 3 feet of social distance to protect those among us at higher risk.
The conversation will be loosely structured around the topic of ‘collective safety,’ with a mix of whole group and small group opportunities to share story and make community. The dialogue will be facilitated by Jenny Kordosky and Nathan Zeckmeister. See bios below!
