MAVA Connections: Working to Hold Space for BIPOC Staff and Volunteers - Open to ALL MAVA Members

Please join MAVA for a free facilitated conversation on how volunteer engagement leaders - both Black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) leaders and white allies - can hold space for BIPOC staff and volunteers at our organizations and in our work.

The past few weeks have brought the start of Derek Chauvin's murder trial, the Atlanta-area murders of eight people including six women of Asian descent and an increase in hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. We recognize that these events add stress, fear and anger to the already-heavy load carried by our BIPOC colleagues and volunteers. It's important that we create opportunities and hold space for BIPOC staff and volunteers to grieve, rest, heal and get the individualized support they need.

Let's talk about how to make this happen, how to lead these efforts, what it might look like and how we can work together to ensure that essential healing and community-building are - and continue to be - a priority at our organizations and in our work.
