About this Event
This is an invitation to cultivate belonging and practice midwifery skills in a safe(r) container in community with other BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA2S+ student midwives and co-conspirators. This space is committed to accountability and growth, learning, trust and creating pockets of JOY.
A note on :<blockquote>"at minimum, identity can be a crucial space from which to organize across shared experience. but identity doesn’t equal, or promise, community. community is a place to practice and participate in care, attention, knowing and being known, being protected, having room to make mistakes and still belong…not just allowed to be there, but be valuable…to heal. to recover. community feels responsible for each other." </blockquote>
-Adrienne Maree Brown
Definition of r: "co-conspirators are people who are actively fighting against the system of white supremacy and in particular the benefits they receive from it."
