Come.

Linger.

Sojourn.

People of Color are invited to participate in open roundtable conversations. Here you can rest, listen and be part of a community where there are no limits to life-giving dialogue. In this space, you can be 100% you. Come and just be, beyond your doing.

These tarry sessions are facilitated by Lydia Tembo and Veronica Cannon and will take place via Zoom the first Thursday of each month, beginning on September 7th from 7:00-8:00 pm ET/4:00-5:00pm PT.

There is no fee to join this conversation and the link will be the same for each conversation. Register with zoom to let us know who is in the room and to receive the link. And don’t worry, if you can’t find the link each month, feel free to register again!
