Invitation to Healing Justice Intensive

The Womanist Working Collective functions as a Community of Practice whose primary focus is centering the Quality of Life for Black women (both cis & trans) & femmes, girls and Gender Non-conforming folks. By promoting our holistic wellbeing, we move the conversation forward from simply ensuring our safety and survival to securing and co-creating optimal conditions for us all to thrive. This individual and collective wellness investment inevitably extends to our surrounding larger Black communities/community spaces.

The ability to thrive, model Black Liberation and access all the resources we need seems to be a few common themes underlying all of our work. Of course, with this work comes a lot challenges we didn’t quite anticipate which require a certain set of skills we may need to hone a bit more. We know we’re not the only group working through organizing and leadership development challenges. We also know that many of us are looking to move into a deeper and more deliberate way of being with ourselves and each other. What we’re learning is that there should be a greater emphasis on intentional radical healing work in all of our radical organizing spaces which prioritize our members/volunteers/our people who dedicate themselves to our work.These are areas we are all working through, or will be at some point, whether we’re new to organizing, or have been struggling for years to locate deeper and more sustainable grassroots networks of support and transformation.

Well, we at The Womanist Working Collective believe we’ve found an answer to question of how to grow through these challenges together and we want to share it with everyone else. So we’re bringing in consultants, Chocolate Soul Revival, to facilitate this healing centered organizing training for our Black activist communities in hopes that these tools can have a far-reaching impact and raise the vibration throughout Philly. This team of Black women artists, healers, activists, and cultural workers from North Carolina who all exist at the intersection of multiple marginalized identities will guide us through a number of topics and offer tools to take back to our people.

Topics covered:
During this training we’ll be learning so many useful tools, such as:
❏ Working through Grief, Apathy & Activism Fatigue
❏ Trauma Informed
❏ Organizing
❏ Transformative Communication
❏ Generative Conflict Resolution
❏ Deconstructing Capitalism from the inside out

❏ Shifting Group Culture from burnout to well nourished & from isolation to interdependent cohesion

❏ Creative Collaboration to share & mobilize resources
This could benefit not just your members/volunteers/staff, but spill over into how you engage with the communities with whom you work.

So, would you join us at this training?

All you’d need to do is RSVP here and block off those dates on your calendar. This is training is being provided for free to individuals and organizations, however if after this event you feel like you’ve gotten something out of it, please donate to either Chocolate Soul Revival or The Womanist Working Collective directly.
