Attending to the Here and Now: A Vigil Against Anti-Black Violence
In light of the recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, George Floyd, and the racial profiling of Christian Cooper, the Pozen Center and its partners want to provide space for current students to process, grieve, and to the extent possible, find healing in the context of so much loss.
This event will include words of remembrance, an opportunity for students to offer brief testimonials, and provide resources and skills for dealing with racial trauma. All undergraduate students and graduate/professional students are welcome and encouraged to participate.
UChicago Student Wellness and Spiritual Life are two of the many areas that can provide individualized support to students impacted by these horrific events.
