Healing Justice Lineages: A History Discussion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Our movement work requires constant consideration of the histories and lineages we are part of. This history of healing justice (HJ) panel features folks who have been a significant part of the HJ movement that has been convening at the AMC over the past decade. Key discussion topics include the foundations that have formed and informed HJ, the intersections of disability justice, racial justice, and HJ, the present state of the HJ, and visions and challenges for the future of HJ. It will also include celebration & honoring of Charity Hicks and other HJ elders and ancestors.
