  • Image preview 6:00pm - 7:30pm: IME Wokeshop: What is Cultural Appropriation?
    It is common to enjoy learning about cultures from around the world. Because of this curiosity and desire to celebrate cultures, it is important that we understand the difference between cultural exchange and cultural appropriation. Once we understand the difference, it is much easier to make decisions on how best to celebrate and acknowledge stories, artifacts, customs, and traditions of a culture. Everyone is welcome!

  • Image preview 6:00pm - 7:30pm: IME Wokeshop: Self Care for Social Justice Advocates
    Do you feel like the more “woke” you become, the more stressed you are? This workshop explores the ways that social justice advocacy adds to our stress & how to more fully integrate “rest”. It hinges on feminist Audre Lorde’s pivotal idea that “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” Everyone is welcome!
