Evergreen Community Circles

The Social Justice Center and the Washington Center are collaborating to foster support, care, and resilience through Evergreen Community Circles.  These circles are one of many ways we can engage in community-centered healing in response to the tragic death of Jonathan Rodriguez, concerning incidents singling out members of our community, our continuing response to the impacts of a global pandemic, and other challenges each of us carry as we endeavor to provide transformative educational experiences for students.

In a community circle, participants will find a supportive setting to share their feelings and experiences. Using a circle format, we practice deep listening skills, allowing each person the opportunity to speak without interruption.

Our small but mighty group of facilitators are available to lead community circles with small groups, which could be comprised of coworkers, committee members, or other groupings of faculty or staff.  If this appeals to you, please connect with us at learningandteaching@evergreen.edu.

If you are interested in learning more, please join us for an information session (details below)

Thank you for all that you do to support a caring community here at Evergreen,
