Celebrating Diversity & Honoring Racial Equality
Celebrating diversity and honoring racial equality are beautiful concepts. Unfortunately, many people are negatively impacted by the fact that racial injustices occur every day. Many people experience aggressions that let them know that they are “other” or “outside of” instead of “a part of” society’s norms. This experience causes trauma and makes it difficult to fully recognize one’s worth and wholeness. While society enjoys catch phrases like, “We’re all the same,” many people are pushed outside. They can’t experience the opportunities that would remind them that they deserve the same freedoms, freedoms that claim our sameness.
Erricka Bridgeford was born in a body that looks “broken” and experiences racial and gender inequalities. In this interactive workshop, she will talk about how she’s been impacted by society’s norms and the importance of finding one’s wholeness while looking and feeling broken.
