Program Full-Description

There have been calls to align indigenous spiritual practices with movement work. These offerings explore emotional emancipation as cultivation of sacred grief & rage, encouraging deeper discussion about privileges and identities. Within this workshop, we will locate and expand upon Indigenous African practices that survived slavery and colonization. Through doing this we’ll look into identifying roles & capacity from ancestral legacies.This workshop is for PGM - People of the Global Majority.

By the end of this workshop, participants will leave with...

  • A greater understanding of how disability justice is aligned with Indigenous African practices of care, healing, and accountability.  

This workshop is ideal for:

  • Black people curious about incorporating Indigenous spiritual practices within their community/organizing.


Access requests, including interpretation and captioners, can be made during registration or by emailing our Director of Disability Justice and Language Access. Requests for interpreters and captioners that are made less than 48 hours before the event typically are more difficult to meet. We will try and notify you if we cannot secure requested access.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
