A weekend of virtual workshops to fund wellness reparations, from Wee The People, 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness, & JP’s Massage Therapy Center
The year 2020 has delivered bodyblows of collective trauma to Black and Brown communities — trauma that is sure to continue after the election. In response, the Boston-based social justice project Wee The People has teamed up with 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness and JP’s Massage Therapy Center for Workshops 4 Reparations, a weekend marathon of antiracism workshops to fund wellness services for Black and Brown people in Boston.
On Dec. 4-5, we will offer our high-impact, foundational antiracism workshops — What Is Racism? for kids and The ABCs of Racism for adults — as a fundraising action to bring wellness and bodywork reparations to Black and Brown folks in need.
Friday, Dec. 4, 4-5pm: What Is Racism?: An interactive workshop for kids ($15, ages 6-10)
Saturday, Dec. 5, 8-10am: The ABCs of Racism: Starting and Sustaining Conversations + Action about Race and Racism with Kids ($36)
Saturday, Dec. 5, 7-9pm: The ABCs of Racism: Starting and Sustaining Conversations + Action about Race and Racism with Kids ($36)
ALL FUNDS from this Eventbrite series will pay for gift cards for massage, yoga, or other wellness treatments at 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness, a Black-owned wellness center based in Dorchester, and JP’s Massage Therapy Center, based in Jamaica Plain. Gift cards will be distributed in partnership with local community-based health centers.
