About the Program:
The BIPOC Bounce Back program is a monthly event series in partnership with local businesses in the Downtown Peterborough area, that have been identified as authentic allies and that operate with a no-tolerance policy for discrimination, hate or racism.
From April to December 2023, the CRRC will be hosting monthly BIPOC Bounce Back events. Each event will be uniquely themed, hosted at a different local business located in Downtown Peterborough based on the qualifications above, and feature different activities that will foster community building, networking & connection amongst participants, local businesses and community partners.
The program series is open to BIPOC and non-racialized allies. By centering the BIPOC community at these events, our goal is to create intentional spaces for racial inclusivity that:
- invite racialized peoples to “step up” in spaces that have been predominantly occupied by White-Euro settlers, and simultaneously
- encourage non-racialized allies to practice “stepping back”, while showing up and sharing the space for BIPOC centering engagement.
About the Event: Join CRRC and community partner, Des Does Yoga, for a BIPOC-centered yoga practice at the Silverbean Cafe. Yoga practice will be for an hour with drinks and light snacks to follow.
