The UCSD CGS Program proudly presents its Community Series at the Digital Gym:

#TrustBlackWomen: A Celebration of Women's Joy and Healing

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

7:00-9:00 PM

Digital Gym (2921 El Cajon Blvd. San Diego, CA 92104)

In September 2017 women from all around the nation gathered in D.C for the first March For Black Women, to denounce the state violence, sexualized violences, murders and brutalization facing all Black women and additionally the disappearances of our girls from their homes and schools. This March, San Diego will have its first March for Black Women, hosted by Black Lives Matter San Diego. As a precursor to this upcoming event, CGS and Black Lives Matter San Diego invites you to an evening full of community, fun, and reflection as we collectively envision a world in which everyone trusts Black women. Since it will also be Valentine’s Day the latter half of the event will include fun interactive stations where we’ll get to show each other and ourselves some much needed love. This event centers the experiences of self-identified Black women, but is open to everyone.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Let us know you’re coming!
