CAMPAIGN TWO:
Strange Fruit: Race, Violence, and Environment

Introduction

For many communities the violence of racial hatred committed in the woods still echoes through our collective memories. This post traumatic stress negatively impacts our relationships to the earth and to one another. Collectively we remain disconnected from the benefits of the outdoors which results in multiple threats to our physical and mental health, including obesity, diabetes, stress, and no relief from ADD and ADHD. The health of our communities and our youth depends on creating safe experiences for them to thrive, including the woods. Through truth, reconciliation and empowerment we can find solutions for healing our attitudes towards the woods.

Join us for this community conversation with Theryn B. Kigvamasud'Vashti of CARA, Delbert Richardson, collector of the American History Exhibit: The Unspoken Truth, performances by Griot Works Youth Troupe, a. k. Allin, and host Jourdan I Keith. Learn what you can do to protect our social and natural Eco-systems.
