Today, we are thrilled to share our new report, Healing Justice: Building Power, Transforming Movements, featuring work from the brilliant artist Amir Khadar.
Especially critical during this heightened time of anti-migrant, anti-Black, misogynist and anti-LGBTQI violence, this collection of stories, learnings and recommendations lifts up resiliency and survival practices that center the collective safety and wellbeing of communities as an integral part of our fight for collective liberation.
We have learned from our grantee partners, community advisors and peer funders how healing justice is a tool for building power, and how it can deepen and sustain the long, hard work of movement-building.
On May 16, we’ll be convening 75 funders in New York to discuss how we can deepen philanthropic support for this critical work. We’ll be livestreaming the morning and afternoon panels! Please join us on our Facebook page from 10:30am-12:00pm and 1:45-3:45 pm EST.
From these stories and learnings, we hope that we can grow and learn ourselves—unpacking and unraveling our assumptions of what healing and safety can look like within movements, and equipping ourselves to answer the call of resourcing this work for the long haul.
In deep solidarity,
