*Please note: this session is for people who identify as People of Color only*
On April 20, 2021, Derek Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was found guilty of second degree-murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter of George Floyd (Z"l). This decision marks a historic moment in accountability for police violence against the Black community. This decision may spark feelings of joy, grief, retraumatization, relief, celebration, exhaustion, concern, fear (and so much more) in our students, our communities, and ourselves.
This processing space will be lead by Tony Westbrook and is an open forum for People of Color (students and staff, Jewish and non-Jewish) within the Hillel community to come together to share their thoughts, feelings, and reactions to this specific event, series of events, or time period.
A processing space is not a place for answers, decisions, or solutions, but rather exists to allow for participants to feel heard, to ask questions of the group, and to surface important insights that their community might need to hear.
