A Workshop for Psychiatric Survivors With Johanna Rothe

“When I read about Black Healing October and Solidarity Healing September, the whole concept struck me immediately as right. Through its financial structure it acknowledges that Black and white and non-Black people of color are positioned radically different in this world. At the same time it is so welcoming and affirming of potentially everybody’s capacity to contribute something valuable.”
–Johanna Rothe

+ White text over the image of a starry night sky reads: Moving Towards Collective Liberation A workshop for white Direct Service Providers. Below reads: Workshop Objectives: Identify our stake in dismantling external and internal white supremacy. Practice new tools to notice, process and respond to our experiences. Develop resources to stay in alignment with anti-racist values in our lives and work. Facilitated by Sonia Decker & Emily Cobbey.

Moving Towards Collective Liberation: A Workshop for White-Identified Direct Service Providers With Sonia Decker, AMFT and Emily Cobbey, ASW

“We are very excited about being able to financially support space facilitated by Black healers, for Black people! We believe that our healing is all connected and that as white people, we must work to examine and heal the ways in which white supremacy lives in us. We know that any healing work we do within ourselves and with other white folks is a vital part of what we can do to move towards collective liberation. We are excited that Solidarity healing September gives us the opportunity to engage in action on many levels, including directly supporting Black folks as well as engaging with other white folks.”
–Sonia Decker and Emily Cobbey

Packing the Invisible Waistpack: Magical Tools for Anti-Racist Action With Encian Pastel and Meg Thomas

“I am participating in Black Healing October and Solidarity Healing September as an act of reparations and to help create the collective virtual spaces and networks I need to hold me as I teach my body to move through white shame, guilt, anxiety and dissociation. I’m participating in order to retrain my body to find joy and presence in this struggle.”
–Encian Pastel

“As a white woman living in the US, it is deeply important for me to stand in solidarity with Black, Indigenous and Brown people.  If I fail to do that, the world I dream of will surely not come.  If I fail to do that, my own world will be less rooted.”
–Meg Thomas
