August Break is Over! Here Comes September!

Ahh … our break has been wonderful – and productive! As we promised, those of us on the organizing team have engaged in a “retreat” – meeting for several hours-long sessions to renew our vision of “Overdue Reckoning on Racism in Nursing” – and we are ready to start up again! We will continue our two monthly zoom sessions – the first Saturday, and the last Saturday of every month. For September because of the holiday on the first Saturday, we will postpone to the 2nd Saturday, September 11

Each month will have a focus – the September focus is students! Students, please join us to form networks of support, to explore how to address and confront issues around racism, and how to create new possibilities for an anti-racist future. Practicing nurses and educators, join our discussions to support the students, to learn what they envision for their education, and explore anti-racist actions in nursing education.

Each meeting will have its own zoom registration; once your register you will receive the information for the meeting. If you lose the zoom information just register again! Here is the information for our September sessions:

September 11th –

4 – 5:30 pm Eastern – “Overdue Reckoning on Racism in Nursing”

Discussions led by Lucinda Canty and other nurses of color exploring anti-racism activism in nursing. 

September 25th –

4 – 5:30 pm Eastern – BILNOC Reckoning with Racism

Bringing together Black, Indigenous, Latinx and other Nurses of Color to explore avenues for further antiracism actions. These discussions include ideas for personal, family, workplace, and larger community and organizational change. All are welcome to join with the understanding that BILNOC nurses will take the lead in these discussions.

To inspire us as we look forward to September, here is one more short video that gives a great overview related to the work we are doing!
