Black Joy Retreat:  This fall we gather in joy, freedom and community for Our Stories Our Voice’s first ever Black Joy Retreat; a wellness space for Black 2SLGBTQ+ individuals to gather, share their experiences and tell their stories as it pertains to mental health and wellbeing. This is a soft weekend away from the city that circles in joy, calls in tribe, and highlights our connection to food, community and the land. We will engage in Afro diasporic healing practices and rituals that aims to foster comfort, decrease stigma and prioritize safe space. Not to be missed, this #BlackJoyRetreat is a space to practice rest, meet new communities and be held in vulnerability, as we center Black queer and trans joy as resistance.
