Demo Quests for Antiracism

If you’re looking for people to try Charms: Quests for Antiracism with, or want to learn the game while experiencing it in action (online), please join us this Friday January 15, at 7 p.m. CST at the Zoom link below. We can honor Dr. Martin Luther King by finding ways to help put his vision for a racially just and peaceful world into practice.

This is a two-part event. Come for either or both parts.

1. Bring a brief inspiring quote, poem, or prayer (of any or no faith) to share if you wish.

2. After about a half hour, we’ll jump into Quests for Antiracism to kick off 2021.

RSVP by kickstarter message as soon as possible to get the zoom link.

Hope to see you then!
