Resources for Survivors & Allies

Healing justice is a political framework that identifies how we can holistically respond to and intervene on generational trauma and violence, and to bring collective practices that can impact and transform the consequences of oppression on our bodies, hearts, and minds.

Practicing healing justice at a collective level has a greater potential to create the support needed for those experiencing trauma. In the spirit of healing justice, we are sharing a list of some resources that you or your community may benefit from.
