Healing Justice Collective began as a collaboration by Women of Colour living in London, committed to working towards repairing and rebalancing harms and violences by allowing and opening space for healing, reparation and reimagining by those affected. Healing Justice believe in community healing as resistance and take a heart centred approach to this work, honouring and integrating indigenous, black, brown and spiritual traditions which remind that we build, create, understand, restore and cultivate profound intimacy. Working together on tools to help our communities undo harm, heal and regenerate, Healing Justice create workshops, trainings and skillshare for people in Black and Brown, working class and LGBTQI communities.
