FSS Cross-Country Support Community: Rituals to Honor/ Remember
Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 7:30pm eastern
Rituals can be a powerful tool for people to find meaning. As the power of rituals lies in their symbolism, they can be grand, complex and involve entire communities — or can be personal, private and an individual creation.
If you have lost a loved one or been injured in a traffic crash (or care for someone who was), please join us for this important opportunity to connect with others from across the country to learn, reflect and share how rituals can be a vital tool for healing, grieving, honoring and remembering.
MUST RSVP TO GET LOG-IN DETAILS: transalt.org/FSSrituals
Please feel free to share the Facebook event.
