Wednesdays ongoing • Beginning March 16, 2016 • 6:30–8:00 pm

Do you identify as a person of color (POC)?
Do you desire a time and space to decompress and rejuvenate with other POCs, while honoring the stories that you and others carry?
Do you want to rest in restorative forms facilitated by other POCs?

Through the forms of InterPlay©, together we will begin to reclaim our birthrights.

These include:
• The right to move freely in space
• The right to make sound and lift our voices for life’s sake
• The right to tell our stories, to have them witnessed, and the right to listen to others’
• The right to be still
• The right to connect with other POCs

Cost: $0–15 sliding scale
