Virtual Community Grief Education Workshop to be Offered by Imagine

For so many of us, the last two years have brought many cumulative losses connected to the pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, and now the war in Ukraine. Our children have experienced these losses too. In so many ways, we are grieving. We may be grieving the loss of a person we love, or the loss of safety, or the loss of ‘normalcy’. We’re trying to cope with these losses and looking for ways to help each other and our children to cope with them too.
