Join Collective Care Chats – Members Only

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing, it is all too easy to feel a sense of worry and isolation. At this time, we at the Coalition are drawing strength from what is perhaps the central lesson of all Sites of Conscience:

We are stronger together.

History has taught us to be wary of barriers erected out of fear. While we must all use an abundance of caution in our choices in the coming months, we must not stop supporting and engaging with one another. Out of love and compassion for the most vulnerable among us, the Coalition, like so many organizations, has chosen to postpone its upcoming in-person events, but is offering an array of virtual resources on our COVID-19 Virtual Public Sphere. In addition, we are hosting bi-weekly more casual, compassion-focused virtual chats, “Collective Care,” where members can gather virtually to share strategies related to self-care, remote working, and keeping visitors engaged during heightened public health concerns.

For this time, we invite members to join different regional calls if desired. The next chats are scheduled for:
