Community Care Circle (CCC) Series: Navigating The Iceberg of Oppression

Navigating the Iceberg of Oppression is a four-part Community Care Circle (CCC) Series for Black and Brown folks to reflect on the effects of oppression on their well-being.


What is a Community Care Circle (CCC)?

Community Care is the collective responsibility for each other’s well-being. When we do community care, each of us gets to decide the way we want to be cared for.

Estoy Aqui’s CCCs are a combination of Healing Circle Practice and Intergroup Dialogue (IGD) designed for individuals to speak up about their personal experiences and their relationship to the content.  

CCCs can also be offered as workshops where the focus is on content learning with some opportunities for dialogue.
