The Council will be convening five listening sessions of the California Truth & Healing Council in the Southern California/Los Angeles Region from March 11 – 16th. These sessions are in-person only but will be recorded and uploaded to our Youtube page when available. Registration is recommended but not required to attend the listening sessions; however, please note that we do send out logistic information through our Eventbrite page. Register here.

We will begin the week by tabling at the Puvungna Pow Wow at Cal State Long Beach on March 11th. Please stop by our information table to say hi and learn more about the Council – we will also have flyers with information about the upcoming in-person listening sessions. More information on the Pow Wow here.

Based on community feedback, we have created individual flyers for each day in addition to a flyer that lists all of the five upcoming listening sessions. Please see the PDF copies at the bottom of this post, and we encourage you to share them with your networks and community.
