With the postponement of this year’s National Gathering due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Planning Team sent out a new Call for Proposals in order to offer CTTT members a regular, monthly opportunity to connect, to learn, to share. The first session in May was “Tapping the Unrecognized Superpowers of Anti-Racism Allies,” led by Dr. David Campt. The second session in June was an “Introduction to Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) for Cultural Competence,” led by Donna Minter and Crixell Shell of the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute. The third session in July was “How Researching Family History Can Be So Emotional: Or, Why I Had a Meltdown in the Archives,” led by members of the CTTT Linked Descendants Working Group. The fourth session in August was “The Doctrine of Discovery: What is it and why is it relevant today?” led by Crixell Shell of the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute.
There will be sessions offered in coming months as well. In September, we offer:
