When:  Afternoon in October 15th, 2017

Who: 6 Movers and Activist expert to guide discussion

What:  The first hour we held a Parcon class, the second hour, conversations with a field expert on DACA, and the final hour a Parcon Action on the Marion Sims statue. Sims was the founder of "modern day gynecology," who maimed and killed hundreds of slave women to develop his techniques.  

 

Testimony:

"Parcon brings us back to our bodies and our inherent need for play and adventure... Various exercises were explored in such a way that gave each participant to experience what it means for them be in a position of power, and in other cases to be the one who does not have power. Exercises were also culminated with a discussion and feedback. These allowed the participants to have a chance to express more ideas, make connection between the exercises and her daily lives, and also create meaningful conversations with other participants and through their different lens and experience. "   - Ea Torrado
