On Wednesday, we will gather in a grounding conversation about the national call for #SacredResistance by Black Lives Matter on April 1st in Washington DC, and across the country. This is a call to action of all those for whom resistance is and has always been a spiritual truth and practice.

We continue to experience and witness massive coordinated assaults on our dignity, livelihood and wellbeing. These assaults are political, physical, mental, emotional, intentional, and deeply familiar. These assaults are spiritual.
For the fight ahead, we need all of our magic and all of our spiritual and ancestral wisdom to guide us, protect us, and sustain us.
