Liberation Based Healing Conference 2020
3 Clyde Rd
3 Clyde Rd, Somerset, NJ 08873, USA
Whether you are an educator, student, administrator, clinician, or activist these challenging times call for clarity in solidarity-work with families and communities towards equity. Effectively doing so requires that our practices engage in understanding the multiplicity of personal, social and institutional locations that frame identities within historic, economic and political life. The paradigm of Liberation-based Healing locates these complexities within a societal matrix that shapes relationships of: power, privilege, and oppression. Liberatory praxis builds on the foundations of Critical Consciousness, Empowerment and Accountability in order to interrupt White, Cis-Hetero- Patriarchy as a dominant discourse within a Capitalist context of Coloniality. All are welcome in this work!
PRESENTATIONS INCLUDE DISMANTLING WHITE SUPREMACIST INSTITUTIONS AND POLICIES, IMAGINING AND INSTALLING HUMAN RIGHTS FOR EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM, CHALLENGING CHRISTIANITY’S DARK HISTORY OF WHITE SUPREMACY, CREATING AND EXPANDING NEW SPACES FOR HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH HEALING, LINKING THE POLICY OF MASS INCARCERATION TO THE SEGREGATION AND DECIMATION OF BLACK AND BROWN COMMUNITIES, AND MUCH MORE!
