Racial Healing Circles Workshop Series

Session 4: Culmination of the Healing Process

Join us and share your stories about race, culture, color, language and class to promote healing. The UC Davis Clinical and Transnational Science Center's RECAB Racial Healing Circles seek to create a safe space to foster dialogue on healing and resiliency among academic and community partners to proactively strengthen our collective ability to acknowledge racism and discrimination that is affecting many community members of our academic institution and the public at-large. The project will focus on convening academic-community oriented healing circles on sensitive topics about race, culture, color and class. We will be adopting the Attitudinal Healing Connection's model of defining racism as a life threatening disease. We express that the concept of race is a social and cultural construct.

The focus will be on storytelling and narrative change. Open to all. Free admission, dinner, and reserved parking at UC Davis Health, Sacramento, register online. For more information contact F. Malik at ftmalik@ucdavis.edu or (916) 703-9138.

This program is funded by the UC Davis Health Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. This collaborative effort is organized by the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center and Center for Reducing Health Disparities. The Racial Healing Circles are adopted and modeled after the Attitudinal Healing Connection, an Oakland-based organization, that is devoted to building strong, healthy communities.
