An Introduction to Healing Justice

An Introduction to Healing Justice

Healing justice (HJ) is a social justice movement that considers healing and care to be necessary to achieve true liberation from oppression. HJ was created in response to the high rates of burnout, ableism, and depression seen in social justice organizers and activists and explores the question: what would it look like to create movements for liberation that prioritize the wellness and care of everyone involved? This workshop will introduce participants to the history, framework, and principles of the HJ movement; define what “wellness” looks like for marginalized communities; and explore methods of self and community care.
