Healing Justice Summit: Building a Healing Justice Movement
Sept. 15th: Kick Off event Feat. Shawn Ginwright & YOC Organizers 5:30-8:30pm
Sept. 16th: Full Day Healing Justice Experience 10am-5pm
The Healing Justice Summit is an event that brings together youth, organizers, community leaders, community based organizations, scholars, policy makers, artists, activists, advocates, parents, community residents and more to share our/their stories, skills, experiences of pain, truths, survival tactics and expertise to advance the work of grassroots and cultural practices of wellness, leadership and collective liberation for the most marginalized youth and their communities. The two day summit aims to deepen the attendees collective analysis, uplift and provide descriptive examples of grassroots and cultural approaches to community safety, leadership development, conflict de-escalation, community organizing and community building and practices of wellness. The other aims of the summit are to strengthen the network of those applying healing-centered approaches within youth organizing, youth/human development and community development to make visible the lessons learned, victories and struggles from such praxis.
Organized by the The Youth Organizing Collective of H.O.L.L.A.! in collaboration with the Center for Nuleadership on Urban Solutions, the Flourish Agenda and the Center for Justice at Columbia University
