Dream Refuge for Children Imprisoned Ritual

What are the connections we can make across time, culture, space? Join us in a procession led by musicians Ellen Bepp, Kallan Nishimoto and Tsuru for Solidarity, to the Dream Refuge for Children Imprisoned installation, a sacred place of inquiry and healing. This is our American story - Japanese American incarcerees, Native American children, and those detained at the US-Mexico border. These children have lived the inverse of the American dream. Their trauma is intergenerational. Only in dreams can they meet and find refuge. Be immersed in a sound healing meditation and hear the stories of children imprisoned.
