GANGGANG partnered with Pacers Sports and Entertainment to present the inaugural Indianapolis’ Day of Mental Health and Healing sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield on May 14, 2021. Declared an official day by the City of Indianapolis, we encouraged and provided a way for the entire community to collectively take a break in the form of a pause to reflect, be mindful, and take action toward their mental health.

Please plan to join the only two TRHT Campus Centers in the state of Kansas in community engagement by sharing authentic personal narratives resulting in racial healing and community building. Bethel College and Kansas State University TRHT Campus Centers are coming together to facilitate a virtual Racial Healing Circle to build relationships, foster partnerships, and cultivate community across identities.

The Source introduces 'Peace Reflections' on this National Day of Racial Healing, advocating for its significance every day. Embark on a journey with us, celebrating the roles of Peace and Knowledge in fostering community healing. This echoes the teachings of Queer, Black, and Brown liberative organizing, where communities have been united through principles of Peace, art, and education. We are honored to have Michael Roberson, a distinguished public health practitioner, LGBTQ advocate, activist, artist, and curator, join us as we explore the Ballroom Scene, recognized as a powerful space of resistance against oppression, driven by love, creativity, and community as transformative forces.

Throughout history, Black Liberative leaders and communities, including iconic figures like MLK Jr. and the legacies of the Ballroom community, have served as havens for marginalized people. 'Peace Reflections' showcases contemporary expressions of peace and fosters exchanges by honoring these legacies and lineages.

Drawing on the ancestral wisdom of Michael Roberson (Founder of the Haus of Maison-Margiela, The Federation of Ballroom Houses, and influential public health advocate involved in programs like H.E.A.T – Health & Education Alternatives for Teens program) and Elaine Talamaivao (founder of Tala Mai Moana & Co-Visioner of The Source), our goal is to share practices and knowledge useful for cultivating Peace on the journey to create a more healed society.

On January 29th, join us for the 'Conversation of Change' with Michael Roberson. The conversation delves into the transformative intersection of art and activism, advocating for a deeper contemplation of the community's relationship to Peace, Joy, and Freedom. The culmination is a question posed by Michael Roberson in 2012 at Ultra Red’s installation “Sound of Freedom” at the Whitney Biennial: What does it mean to be truly human and free?

On January 28th, Elaine Talamaivao leads Self-Care Sunday, promoting peace within oneself through Pacific Islander ancestral pathways. She prompts the question: What does it mean to have the essence of Peace present in your body?
