All participants of Giving Voice are invited to this year’s “Giving Voice Encuentro: Liberation, Justice, & Healing,” happening August 19-22, 2021 at the Carmelite Spiritual Center in the Chicago suburbs. This gathering will address a variety of topics as it builds upon the momentum of the virtual “Giving Voice Cultural Diversity and Inclusion Encuentro,” which occurred in October 2020, facilitated by Dr. Lisa Summerour.
As we move toward the Encuentro in August, we would like to create a space of encounter as we continue to engage in the process of liberation, justice, and healing. The process will include three virtual pre-work sessions once a month leading up to the in-person Encuentro. The pre-work sessions and the Encuentro will be facilitated by AnaYelsi Velasco-Sanchez.
All Giving Voice members are invited to attend the pre-work sessions whether or not they plan to attend the Encuentro. While we realize that not everyone can attend all three sessions, there is a single registration fee of $75 for the sessions as they are intricately connected to one another. It is therefore highly encouraged that members attend all sessions.
Registration is now open for the pre-work sessions!
