How do we move from hurt to healing? The murder of George Floyd and the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic brought together young people and elders in a three-month Zoom conversation focused on healing from trauma. Elders shared stories of how they persevered in their racial justice struggles when they were young, and young people asked questions, listened, and led mind-body medicine breathing tools they were practicing to heal from their stress and burn-out in the aftermath of intensive activism responding to the traumatic events of 2020.
