Description

So what is a racial mocroaggression?

It's like the elephant in the room except, well, it’s micro. Like a mosquito, it can't be ignored. And it really, really bothers.

This event presented tales about microaggressions from those who have received them and those who have spoken them. Through our telling, we hear about their effects in a supportive and fun environment, allowing ourselves to listen, grow, learn, and transform ourselves and the world.
