TWO Opportunities for Anti-Racism Training & Healing
Presented by The ECC Truth & Reconciliation Commission  

“My Grandmother’s Hands” Book Club Wednesdays – January 5th to March 18th
Join the ECC Truth & Reconciliation Commission for a winter book club on Resmaa Menakem’s My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies. We will be meeting virtually every other Wednesday over the course of 12 weeks starting January 5th from 5:30-7:00pm Pacific time to discuss and practice the embodied exercises to help heal from the racial trauma that lives in our bodies. All bodies are welcome to join in this work, and it is important to mention that this book specifically focuses on white bodies, black bodies, and police bodies. This is a great way to live into any New Year’s resolutions related to your healing, liberation, or anti-racism work, and do it in community rather than alone! Space is limited so sign up today through this form: Any questions please direct to Jenn Reyes Lay at
