Community Healing Vigil

Together with YWCA St. Paul, we are holding two simultaneous virtual events to join our communities as we give space to grieve and honor the lives of those lost to police brutality. Our community has experienced extreme pain and anger, and through these events we will hear from community leaders and artists to collectively heal and generate support for ways to enact change to eliminate systemic racism and police brutality among Black men and women.
