Rehumanize Retreat online on August 19 from 5pm-9pm CDT
Every year, Rehumanize International holds a retreat where we get together for fellowship and planning for the next year. This year, due to continued COVID concerns we are holding our retreat online starting on Friday, August 19th, and they have decided open up their Friday night activities to the wider Rehumanize community.
The schedule for Friday includes some time for introductions, team-building, and icebreaker activities as well an hour-long Q&A hosted by Herb Geraghty and Aimee Murphy, the founder of Rehumanize International. During this time they will be able to answer any questions you might have related to the work. These can range from specific apologetics or talking points on particular CLE issues, the scope of our work, the organization's history, our current projects and programs, and anything else you can think of in the realm of Rehumanize, life, peace, + justice.
If you would like to attend, please reach out to Rehumanize Chicago via social media, email, or Keybase and (if we know you!) we will share the link with you.
