As Lama Rod says: “We are living through a period of deep disruption. Marginalized communities have historically experienced the impact of systematic disruption more directly, and have often been at the forefront of creating communities of deep care and resiliency in the face of intense change. For the LGBTQIA+ BIPOC community, we have seen more violence against transgender woman, higher levels of financial, food, and housing insecurity, as well as threats to our access to health care. In this dialogue, we will explore this reality along with practices of spiritual care and resiliency to help us as individuals and as a community navigate these times.'
