I wanted to share an important event happening in our community. “The Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi) and Community Healing Network, Inc. (CHN) today announced that when they introduce Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles, a grassroots healing initiative, in Missouri this weekend, Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6, they will be joined in spirit with activists holding simultaneous events across the country. Psychologists and activists will host EE Circles in New Haven, CT, Tuskegee, AL, Baltimore, MD, Los Angeles, CA, Oakland, CA, and Portland, OR. EE Circle activists in the Caribbean, the UK, and Cuba will also be joining in spirit.”
The Los Angeles EEC will be facilitated by Dr. Chante’ DeLoach, Chair of Emotional Emancipation Initiatives for ABPsi, on Saturday December 6th from 1:30-3:30 pm.
“EE Circles are support groups in which Black people are working together to overcome and overturn the lie of Black inferiority–the root cause of the persistent devaluing of Black lives: people like Michael Brown in Ferguson, Tamir Rice in Cleveland, and Eric Garner in New York City.”
Please share this information far and wide, as all are invited to participate!
