BIPOC for a Better Birth is hosting a Painting, Loss, and Remembrance Workshop : SPlog – Smile Politely – Champaign-Urbana's Online Magazine

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, and BIPOC for a Better Birth is hosting a free painting class to help BIPOC families who have experienced these losses.
Their Painting, Loss, and Remembrance Workshop will be held October 15th from 1 to 4 p.m. at Phillips Recreation Center. The event is free, kid-friendly, and breastfeeding-friendly.
Participants will be led by an instructor, and there will also be an opportunity for people to share their stories if they feel compelled to do so.
 
There are still spots available. You can register for the class here.
The BIPOC for a Better Birth mission statement:
BIPOC for Better Birth is a grassroots organization that addresses the unique needs of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) who continue to face disproportionately poor pregnancy and birth outcomes while creating pathways to better reproductive experiences by raising awareness, building community, and supporting the efforts of birthworkers like doulas, midwives, lactation specialists, and herbalists who recognize the intersection of racism and medicalized childbirth.

The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law. 
SPlog posts aren't meant to be read as full articles — most often, they are short, quick bits of information about something that doesn't necessarily warrant a full article, though are worthy of posting.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
