What is Healing Justice?
"Healing Justice is the practice of reimagining wholeness at the intersection of intergenerational trauma, current structures of oppression, and generative, and co-creative future.
We hold that joy and pleasure create possibility to be in right relationship with ourselves, each other, and the land. "
- Healing By Choice Detriot
"Generational and present-time trauma from experiences with state and other forms of violence deeply impact those working in movements for social justice.
Healing justice is a response to this trauma, lifting up practices that support resilience, wellness, and safety and increasing the strength and sustainability of our movements.
There is no template for healing justice work. It needs to emerge out of real people in real-time, grounded in community and place.
Organizations and movements need access to healing practitioners with shared experience; in turn, practitioners need to be able to sustain themselves and their work.
Applying a healing justice framework requires rethinking organizational infrastructure, human resources, budgeting, safety and security, and supervision."
