Bring your parents! An Intergenerational Gathering for White Families With Anna Ostow

“I want white people to seek and ultimately find where our stake lies in racial justice and the Movement for Black Lives, to find and hold dear how our liberation is bound up in the liberation of others. That is where I find meaning and its what brings me joy. Solidarity Healing September and Black Healing October makes all these connections explicit–that our healing is linked, that my healing can support your healing and vice versa, and allows for a beautiful sharing and distribution of resources in the direction so that one day every single person without exception will have the healing they need and deserve.”
–Anna Ostow

Dear Me: A Love Letter to Myself With Anna Flurry (she/her/hers)

“Participating in Black Healing October and Solidarity Healing September is important to me because I believe that in order to grow as interconnected, caring communities, we must learn about ourselves and the world that we live in, and we must heal from the toxicity of white supremacy and oppressive hierarchies, as well as from the harm that we have survived and caused. The more we heal ourselves, the more we heal the world, and the more we heal the world, the more we heal ourselves. They are one and the same. And so we will grow these outwardly spiraling, tessalating networks of caring communities engaging in healing and educating practices, and we will build the liberated world that we dream of.”
–Anna Flurry

Flyer "What is our relationship to Blackness? / A workshop for Psychiatric Survivors / Solidarity Healing September"
Image description: The image is a collage considting of three squares in front of a grey background. In the bottom left corner, there is a yellow box, with the handwritten words: “What is our relationship to Blackness? / A workshop for Psychiatric Survivors / Solidarity Healing September 2020.” Next to it, on the right there is a photo of a white woman’s face and chest. She has blue glasses and is looking somewhere to the left of the camera, her expression something between a smile and a frown. She is wearing a light grey scarf, a turquoise hoodie and a black windbreaker. In the background there are parked cars and an apartment building. At the bottom of the flyer there is a print, where white lines are etched into the black surface, showing a sketch of a hospital bed with a restraining belt, disparate limbs, and the words “STOP THE ABUSE!” Below the print, it is written: https://entisolieren.de

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

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

Every Body Music for Every Body With Jonathan Best

“I have become hyper aware in the last few months of how much it hurts to participate in a system built from the ground up upon racism. Every little bit I participate in dismantling this system feels uplifting. Because using music to bring people together has been central to my adult life I jump at every opportunity to use it in this struggle.”
–Jonathan Best
