ANSWERING A CALL FOR HEALING...
Local organizers began to receive an abundance of calls and requests for resources in healing, therapy and counseling, specifically for those who were experiencing trauma in relation to police brutality (experiencing/witnessing) and grief/loss in the black dc community.
In response to these requests, Black Lives Matter DC Healing House collaborated with local therapists to develop a healing network that can provide better access and choices of health and wellness in the Washington D.C. community.
The Healers For Liberation Network makes room for the role of the healer, for the practice of community care and in the fire burning within activism to get free. We strive to uphold our values in mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, ancestral and intergenerational healing through development of healing communities, everyday ritual practice of self-care and learning effective ways to face our internal trauma and external trauma in Black, POC and indigenous communities.
