Lunchtime meeting, Monday 6 May, 12-2:00pm, Aoraki Room, Community and Public Health, 310 Manchester Street.
Durham St Methodist Church and Christchurch Social Equity & Well-being Network (SEWN), with the support of Healthy Greater Christchurch Waka Toa Ora team are convening a lunchtime opportunity to debrief, regroup, and share ideas and support for a future more inclusive Christchurch following the terror attack of 15 March.
“This terrorist sought to tear our nation apart with an evil ideology that has torn the world apart. But instead we have shown that New Zealand is unbreakable and that the world can see in us an example of love and unity. We are brokenhearted, but we are not broken. We are alive. We are together. We are determined to not let anyone divide us…” (Gamal Fouda, Imam of Al Noor Mosque)
This event is scheduled for a little more than six weeks after the terror attacks. Will the sense of love and connectedness be as strong? Will it be transforming into actions that help keep it that way? We have set aside some time and space for a dialogue – to gather, share, and reflect – and perhaps for some, to consider what we could do next – together.
