Shared in whole from Disha Patel, our partner at Common Ground High School:
Created by and for middle and high school young adults, this virtual space is open to young people interested in connecting with their peers to learn and talk about mental wellness in families of color. Hosted with leadership from Students for Educational Justice, this Zoom meeting will have a political education segment on mental health, removing police presence in schools, and the legacy of Dr. King. Choose either a spoken word workshop hosted by The Word and teaching artists Tahj Galberth and Aaron Jafferis, or a visual arts workshop facilitated by teaching artist Jadie Meprivert.
Pre-registration and permission from a parent or guardian are required by Friday, January 14th. Peabody staff will follow up with parent or guardian to complete the permission form once the pre-registration is complete.
