Last week, we spent Tuesday and Wednesday working with students from UMBC, Loyola University, The Choice Program, Peaceworkers, and The Shriver Center by leading a Virtues Project workshop incorporating the TRHT (Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation) framework. Students and participants (including some Wombworkers) joined together in healing circles, one-on-one interviews, and open discussions regarding the issues of talking about race and equity.

Participants in these two half-day workshops started the process of channeling their energies into tangible strategies that would allow them to utilize the universal language of the virtues to enhance their ability to communicate with their peers regarding their stories and racial healing.
