Affinity Group Conversations 2
Join us for a series of racial and identity caucuses to engage in healing conversations. Aja and Nicole from 2 Brown Girls will foster a real experience of community as we start processing everything last year has thrown at us, plus centuries of systemic racism that have brought us to where we are.

During this time we will continue our conversation from January 14 and we will chat about:

- Learning to self care in these unprecedented times, and how processing trauma can be part of it
- How to be a better ally
- Preparing for sustained involvement in the movement and to prevent burnout
- Learning more about of the systematic nature of racism

Aja Taylor
@2 Brown Girls
Aja comes to this work as a young Black woman raised by socially conscious parents who always pushed their children to not just examine, but also challenge oppressive systems. Aja has been organizing since 14, where she organized young people and adult allies around the deplorable conditions at Oak Hill Juvenile Detention Facility in DC. Since then, her professional work has been with countless community organizations, coalitions and nonprofits to not just mobilize impacted people around critical public policies, but to intentionally develop the leadership infrastructure in ways that allow said communities to continue to put pressure on systems and challenge the status quo in ways that build their collective power.
