At this moment, we are all trying to comprehend the gravity of recent tragic events and the constantly changing COVID-19 situation. Many of us are processing feelings of frustration, anger, fear, confusion, heartbreak, and anxiety as we navigate these historical and political contexts, and the deep social inequities rising to the surface. To meet this moment, we believe that learning, reflection, and action requires space for brave and supportive processing of these events within our community. We invite you to an informal (and all digital) get-together from the comfort and safety of your own home. We want to share with you how Densho is rapidly adapting and expanding the tools we offer during this unprecedented time. Our online platform and digital materials are needed now more than ever to help deepen public understandings of racism and xenophobia—and how to activate our history to combat it.
So let’s stay connected. We may not be able to gather in person, but we can use webinars and video calls to remain socially close but physically distant. No formal agenda. Just conversation and community. Tom will share some thoughts and we will be ready to spend some quality time answering questions from you, our friends.
