About The Event

Rest. Relax. Refresh. Renew-Revive-Rekindle.

Calling all committed and on the journey to #HealingRacism --

You are cordially invited to join us for our first Annual #HealingRacism Refresh Retreat.

Join us in this reflective and refreshing urban retreat setting. Retreat includes two nights overnight accommodations and meals in a refreshing urban retreat setting at the Nicholas Center in the heart of downtown Chicago.

Retreat speakers and facilitators include Rev. Randall K. Blakey of LaSalle Street Church and the Near North Unity Project and Rev. LaDonna Sanders Nkosi, Founder of The Gathering Chicago.

Together we will:

Explore and strengthen our identities and skills as agents of healing racism.

Identify the places and spheres of influence where God is calling us and where we can be most effective.

Be immersed and share in the wisdom of healing racism fore-runners and discover our own contemporary mentors and spiritual mentors on the journey to healing racism.

Relax, rest and rejuvenate. (This is the key objective of this #Refresh retreat)

Share our stories (if you like) and listen in to those of others.
