Event description

Description

The Healing Justice Youth Leadership Graduation Ceremony is an celebration that brings together youth, organizers, community leaders, community based organizations, scholars, policy makers, artists, activists, advocates, parents, community residents and more to celebrate our Healing Justice Youth Organizers for their works and sacrifice over the last eighteen (18) month process. Our Healing Justice youth organizers have completed two intensive political-education, relationship building and healing –centered youth organizing trainings. Six months within the Nat Turner Revolutionary Training and twelve months within the Youth Organizing Collective Training. The practice of Human Justice pedagogy and lifestyle is extremely challenging, and our Healing Justice youth leaders have shown up time, time and time again to struggle with themselves, each other, and the structural forces that steal wellness and liberation from their lives. And communities of color in general. Over the last 18-months our Healing Justice youth organizers have uplifted a movement for healing and justice, co-created vulnerable spaces for individual and community healing and engaged in deep relationship building with youth of color, artistic, parents, people impacted by systems of oppression, community organizers, scholars, street organizers, educators, our families, a list of community based organizations, children, people locked in cages, service providers of youth of color, practitioners and more in New York City and other across the nation. This ceremony aims to celebrate and affirm our Healing Justice youth organizer sacrifice and personal and collective development. The other aims of this ceremony are to celebrate and affirm H.O.L.L.A!'s progress as an organization, to uplift H.O.L.L.A!’s Healing Justice Movement and to celebrate and affirm our family, partners, and collaborates who have assisted us along this journey.
