Healing Justice 2-Day Training Apps Due June 29, 2018

Posted on June 6, 2018

Healing Justice

The NYC Capacity Building Collaborative is accepting applications for Healing Justice, a 2-day training, with optional follow-up group coaching hours.

Doing the daily work of social change can expose us to trauma and lead to burnout, which is only magnified when leaders hail from low-income, people of color communities. This workshop will help participants understand an empowering framework around trauma, their personal leadership, and vision in order to build strategies dedicated to promoting the healing and resilience of community organizers and community workers. Through the 2-day training, participants will reflect and engage in activities geared towards how to implement healing-centered strategies in their personal lives and in the structures, processes, and culture of their organizations. Finally, participants will self-organize in a community of peers to advance internal work and have opportunities to continue to receive and offer support to this cohort of organizations in order to sustain individual wellness practices.

Dates and Times: Monday, July 9th, 10am-5pm & Monday, September 17th, 10am-5pm
Location: Midtown


This training will be conducted by Rusia N. Mohiuddin. In-person training dates are July 9th and September 17th in Midtown, with optional follow-up group coaching for organizations.
