HEALING and Maintaining HOPE in the Face of HARM - NYC Men's Roundtable

Date: 
Thu, 07/28/2016 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Location: 
127 W. 127th St. Room 432, Harlem, NY 10027
In the face of social injustices like police brutality, the attack on black bodies and lives and the ongoing hurts to people of color feelings of despair, anger, and hopelessness are natural.
 
Often the gendered role men are given in our society, prevents men from being able to have a safe and supportive space to vent their feelings, be heard, and supported.

Join us for our July NYC Men’s Roundtable to come together and maintain our sense of hope and heal our spirits so that we can continue the work of building safe families and peaceful communities. ​
