What is Embodying Our Truths,
Healing from Anti-API Hate? 

Embodying Our Truths, Healing from Anti-API Hate is a virtual retreat (hybrid learning experience) for self-identifying Asian, Filipinx/a/o, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander peoples to reflect, listen to the truth within, and heal from stress, grief, and trauma engendered by systemic and acute hate and racism.

Pandemic life has taken a significant toll on communities of color. Asian, Filipinx/a/o, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander peoples have experienced increased violence over the last 2 years. Witnessing and/or surviving discrimination and hate crimes can leave us feeling down, angry, numb, and everything in-between.  

This virtual retreat will provide space to honor grief and loss, examine values and truths, and remember the resiliency of ourselves, ancestors, families, and communities. The retreat will also invite participants to embody radical hope, joy, and authenticity as acts of resistance. 
Wherever you are in the global diaspora, Embodying Our Truths, Healing from Anti-API Hate invites you to gather for collective healing and liberation.
