Passed and Present: BIPOC Grief

Join this urgent conversation on grief and remembrance with author Allison Gilbert and Tinisch Hollins, executive director of Californians for Safety and Justice.

Bring your most pressing questions to our next event in the Passed and Present conversation series. Host Allison Gilbert will host a new discussion the last Thursday of every month.

This special event is for BIPOC grievers and their allies. We’ll cover how your racial identity impacts the way you grieve and share strategies to help you cope with your unique grief experience. Bring your concerns and questions. We’re here to support and listen.
