ORABSE Ubuntu Affinity Spaces

The purpose of Ubuntu Affinity Space is to navigate the sense of isolation that participants often feel and to help them “recharge” their commitment after realizing they are a part of a larger community. Black educators come together in a “kinship” to reflect on their experience of participation and presence in the work that they do. A drawing will take place at each meeting for a participant to receive a $50 gift certificate.
