JTW hosts weekly healing sessions that are open and free to community organizers and anyone directly or indirectly impacted by state violence or other forms of oppression. The sessions include yoga, spoken word, guided meditation, storytelling and more. We also make space and time for healing at all of our member meetings.
Why Is Healing Important?
We organize these events because a movement against a violent and violating phenomenon, like the police and prison system, cannot hope to be successful if we don’t directly address and heal the effects of that violence and heal the traumas we incur from confronting that violence.
Healing with community
In this time of both personal and collective traumas it is vital that we dedicate time to healing as individuals, but also to healing as communities.
