The 18th Annual Liberation Based Healing Conference
Montclair State University
1 Normal Ave, Montclair, NJ 07043, USA
The Liberation Based Healing Conference (LBHC) is an annual, two-day event that brings together scholars, activists, educators, students, staff and community members from all over the U.S. to engage in collective discourse about how coloniality shows up in traditional education and therapeutic models. The panels at this conference use an intersectional approach to dissect how societal-level markers, such as ability, age, class, citizenship, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sexual identity, show up simultaneously in community and individual levels as power and privilege.
Year after year, the Liberation Based Healing Conference, founded by the Institute for Family Services, creates opportunities to share strategies that promote relational healing and liberation. It’s a celebration of our work, our creativity and our culture, and an opportunity to change the world for the better in both incremental and profound ways.
What to Expect:
Inspiring and knowledgeable speakers
Fascinating and timely discussions
