Community Healing Circles
Ramsey County, in partnership with the City of St. Paul, is offering virtual and in-person community healing circles that are welcoming, safe, and supportive spaces for participatory dialogue, building connections, and addressing trauma caused by the killing of George Floyd last summer, the civil unrest that followed in our neighborhoods and the ongoing trial. Ensuring the health and wellbeing of community is at the center of our response plan during these difficult times and we’re working with several cultural healers who use their lived experiences, expertise and training to facilitate conversations that get at shared healing. Additional information and a short description for each healer can be found on Ramsey County’s healing spaces webpage.
