The POWER Project: 'Sunday Reset' Urban Hike

Starting Location: Bloomingdale Ave & N. Humboldt Blvd
Ending Location: Comfort Station
Suggested Donation: $7
Programmed by Nina Yeboah, Facilitated by Viva Yeboah

Make room for some quiet in your week. Join us as Viva Yeboah (pictured above) leads us on a reflective hike through Logan Square. We will meet on the 606 Trail (at W. Bloomingdale Ave & N. Humboldt Blvd) and end at Comfort Station. The hike will take approximately one hour to complete. Please:
Eat beforehand
Bring water
Wear comfortable walking shoes
Use appropriate sun protection like sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses
Bring a yoga mat or blanket to rest at Comfort Station (optional)

Fruits and other snacks will be available during our fellowship at Comfort Station. 

Suggested donation: $7. Your donation will go towards the P.O.W.E.R. Project Grant. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.

About our hike leader:
Viva Yeboah is a nature lover who enjoys connecting people to the beauty that surrounds us, from our forest preserves to Lake Michigan and our city parks. In 2012, she founded the Chicago network of Outdoor Afro. Since then, she has organized local and national recreational and nature events with a focus on Black joy and history in each space. With each outing, Viva encourages attendees to embrace their local surroundings, connect with nature and each other.

About the P.O.W.E.R. Project
The P.O.W.E.R. Project is a programming partnership between Comfort Station and the Art Leaders of Color Network (ALCN). Throughout the month of June, the project will host a series of lectures, workshops, self-care exercises, and more in the aim of creating an ‘empowerment hub’ where people inspire each other to engage in a multitude of social justice practices.

Donations collected at each P.O.W.E.R. event, will go toward the P.O.W.E.R. Grant, a fund for participating artists with projects in alignment with the P.O.W.E.R. Project’s vision.
