Racial trauma is real. According to the APA, racial trauma, a form of race-based stress, refers to People of Color and Indigenous individuals’ (POCI) reactions to dangerous events and real or perceived experiences of racial discrimination. Such experiences may include threats of harm and injury, humiliating and shaming events, and witnessing racial discrimination toward other POCI.
The Black Joy Retreat is our way of alleviating the racial trauma. We've partnered with Bridge the Divide, a organization the provide antiracist education and advocacy in suburban Milwaukee. Join Race and Faith and Bridge the Divide in supporting and providing relief from racial trauma. Your financial support will: provide care packages to people of the global majority as well as provide financial support for those wanting to attend The Black Joy retreat.
While we recognize racial trauma, we also recognize the power to heal when we are together. So, we want to do just that, heal together. Creating space for Black individuals and families to have fun and rest in an affirming, safe atmosphere is essential to that healing. Your support this month, helps us to continue on with this healing work. Next up, The Black Joy Retreat: Western New York this Labor Day weekend.
