Authentic Conversations For Post Election Healing says
“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

The Pack holds a safe space for intimate, vulnerable conversations about personal experiences, perceptions, fears, and dreams in order to cultivate authentic human connection, and provide meaningful social support that stays beyond the experience.

The 2016 Presidential Election has deeply impacted our community by allowing hate and injustice to be acceptable and endorced by our country's highest leader. The tension and division extends beyond party lines into personal attacks and prejudices that are deepening racism and sexism that still plague our society. Through The Pack workshop, our community will be able to share truths through open and honest conversation and collaboratively agree on a call to action giving individuals tangible ways to engage in their own communities around the issues discussed.

Workshops includes:
- Intimate conversations in Packs of four participants
- Whole group reflection
- Community Contract created by workshop participants committing to uphold and uplift the important takeaways and action items agreed upon by everyone

There will be a second workshop after the New Year for participants to return and reflect on the opportunities and difficulties faced by the Community Contract.

Anyone willing to be open, honest, and vulnerable about your life experiences regarding race, privilege, and bias no matter your color, gender, age, religion, profession, etc.

We welcome community members from all over the Metro-Detroit region.

We also welcome community members younger than 18.
