Any and all who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color) are welcome at this meeting. We are excited to to have you join our online sangha and foster the relationships that will lead us to deeper understanding and freedom. Please also join the RD BIPOC Facebook Group!

This is a safe space ONLY for people who racially identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color.

For the safety and protection of this group we ask that you have your video on at the beginning of every meeting. This is a safe space for people who racially identify as Black Indigenous People of Color.

If for some reason you are unable to use the video, because you are at work or it doesn’t work, or for another reason, please let the facilitator or a co-host know through the chat feature. If you are calling in, we ask that you unmute and introduce yourself during the introduction part of the meeting.

If there is no response when asked to turn on your video and/or audio and no response through the chat, you will be respectively removed from this meeting. We are creating a safe space where people can share their recovery authentically and confidentially.

If you do NOT identify as a part of our BIPOC community and are an ally, the best way that you can support us is by leaving the meeting now and honouring our sacred space. If you are someone who presents as white but feels that you belong in this space, please acknowledge this when it comes time for introductions so that we can welcome you as someone who personally experiences racism in your daily life.

If you have a Security or Safety concern at any time during the meeting, by all means use the Chat feature to alert the facilitator or a co-hosts. Thank you.
