Holding The Story
Monday February 8th, 2021, 1:00pm – 3:00pm EST*
Presenter: Derona King, Coordinator Citizen Advocacy of Atlanta & DeKalb, Inc.
As a citizen advocacy coordinator, Derona King has had the privilege of being a witness to decades of people who have voluntarily entered into one another’s lives. What these people have created together is often more beautiful than anything they could have created apart from one another. These are stories of light and hope and love.
Some of these people have shared lives together for decades and some have left this earth, but their stories live on to teach us. They have become the Legacies that inspire our future community building efforts.
Bring your notepads and pens and be prepared for these reflections

2. What stories are we carrying that need to be told that bring more love and light into the world?
3. Telling truthful stories that reflect the complexities of life while upholding the dignity of those involved.
4. How have the stories you carry impacted the way you move through life?
