Open Walls is the first of three events connecting the universal message implicit in Judaism’s three pilgrimage holidays with the need and desire for social change. Join MaTovu and community partners at our Sukkah located at the Transgender Memorial Garden the week of October 13-19 during Sukkot (a Jewish holiday honoring a space to welcome all people, past and present, to build stronger, wider communities). We’ll eat, share ideas, and create joy together.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17
6:00 PM: Join us for a Meditation led by Culture Wise. All are welcome.
We gather because strong community requires centered individuals. When we take time to recharge and settle our minds, we arrive at the next thing with greater power, presence, and ability. We meditate to fuel the marathon of asserting our right to vibrant life in this world. Like Audre Lorde taught us: “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
7:00 PM: Join QTPOC (Queer/Trans People of Color) to highlight the wellbeing and thriving of QTPOC folks in STL + drum circle
8:00 PM: Communal meal
