- Tune into our Community Conversations: Sawubona LIVE discussions every month! Our foundation for our Community Conversation series will be in discovering what it means to honor one's humanity: Sawubona. This year the conversations will be based around how we are not our trauma, addressing something regarding trauma each month. It is through the power of community connection and conversation that we counter the narrative, ignite healing and restoration around the many things that often cause Black folks to feel unseen as we navigate life.
