Brown Bodies Bold Stories: The Ways We Heal

April 18, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Brown Bodies Bold Stories: The Ways We Heal

Across our trauma, we can heal. Tell us your story because love grows when we share it with one another.

About this Event

The last 12 months (and counting) have been a time of great pain for our world. Collectively we have experienced an ongoing pandemic, racial injustices, and sociopolitical uncertainty. Within our relationships, we experienced loss, harm, and separation. Individually, we have felt isolation, othering, guilt, and a re-emergence of past traumas.

While these traumas continue, our community responds with resilience. We speak out, give back, care for one another, and rediscover love for ourselves. We heal.

Join us for Brown Bodies, Bold Stories: How We Heal on 4/18 at 2 pm on Zoom. Share a story or hear from others – all are welcome.

Share an original story, poem, or spoken word; or read a published work that has informed your healing journey as a South Asian person. When you share your stories, you bring light to others and forge a pathway for community healing. We are strong in our vulnerability.

Submissions should be:

  • No more than 5 minutes
  • Written or via video
  • Anonymous submissions are welcome – we will ask someone to read it for you
  • Email to contact@dayahouston.org with the subject “Brown Bodies Bold Stories” by April 14th at 5 pm
