At the end of this momentous year, as the COVID pandemic continues to affect the world, we wanted to focus our reflections on the themes of isolation and loneliness, which so many of you are feeling - but also positive themes of letting go, rebirth, and renewal - the possibilities that Winter brings to us.
In the heat of the summer, the impacts of prejudice and racism in the United States were impossible to ignore. We decided to focus our themes on social justice and the distinct mental health challenges of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, reaching out to BIPOC voices who have lived the realities they speak of.
We launched ReflectDeck at the beginning of the COVID epidemic after years of conceptual work on the app and project. The primary focus of this period was the anxiety surrounding the emerging pandemic and its global impact.
