Brave Spaces and Safe Spaces

The following information was provided by AMRCP Steering Committee member and parent of children in Marshall Public Schools, Keena Williams:

Safe spaces are spaces where we are surrounded by individuals we are comfortable with. They allow us to be our most authentic and vulnerable selves while showing empathy to those around us. Brave spaces ask us to be vulnerable, authentic, and empathetic with individuals we may not know well, or at all. Building on the successes of our children, who have shown tremendous courage and growth, the AMRCP is excited to invite adults in our communities to enter into dialogue with one another and aid one another in the process of our own healing.

Community Cookbook – Collecting Recipes!

We are collecting recipes for a Community Cookbook that will be given out later in the year. The cookbook will be a symbol of our communities coming together, sharing our cultures and family traditions.
Please share your favorite recipe with us at info@starr.org, message our Facebook page at facebook.com/amrcp, or give it us in person at one of our events. Please also include the city where you live.
