The Circle: Centering Black Lives

The Circle flyer with event name and date in an overlapping circle design

The Circle is a monthly restorative space from Bias Incident Support Services to center those impacted by identity-based trauma. All UMD members are welcome into The Circle, acknowledging that we are holding space for one another as we share with vulnerability and humility. Restorative circles derive from Indigenous ancestral wisdom as a means for individual and community healing.

For this month's Circle, we will focus our space on centering Black lives, both because of Black History Month and due to the ongoing reality for Black folx encountering violence from American systems and police. We want to uplift Tyre Nichols and his family at this time.

*To ensure the privacy of attendees, this sacred space will never be recorded
