Healing Trauma through Radical Self-Care
The Healing Justice Foundation provides the community with healing support and resources to address inequities.
Dr. Joi Lewis, founder of the Healing Justice Foundation, speaks about the recent and historical trauma experienced by the Black community, and shares how self-care practices can disrupt that trauma and bring communities together through actions rooted in healing and joy.
“When we do the work of liberation, it centers radical self-care as resistance," Dr. Joi says. "When we talk about healing, we use radical self-care as a practice. What does that mean? How to get folks together in community to meditate, to breathe together, to move our bodies so we can interrupt that trauma.”
