HBA Women of Color: Virtual Sister Circle

The HBA Women of Color affinity group invites you to join our upcoming pop-up virtual sister circle to spontaneously share and connect with fellow members. These small gatherings offer a safe space for members to support each other in the spirit of sisterhood and healing, especially in times of conflict.

During this sister circle we will discuss the current war in the Middle East. As members and allies of these communities, we will role model unity, empathy, and compassion. We will close out with a call to action on ways we can collectively foster connections among humanity, bridge both sides, and stand together to bring unity and peace.
