Mission & Vision Statements
We create arts infused healing justice processes to support Black women and girls in restoring wholeness, clarity, and both personal and collective power. Grounded in the cultural wisdom of our ancestors, we facilitate life changing experiences that transform individual and cultural consciousness.
We envision a world where all Black women and girls receive the transformative healing and restorative support necessary to honor the fullness of their humanity, and create lives drenched in love and liberation. We know that prioritizing the chronically unmet needs of those most targeted by intersecting systems of oppression, ultimately uplifts all beings.
“ . . . one of the best things each of us can do—not only for ourselves, but also for our children and grandchildren—is to metabolize our pain and heal our trauma. When we heal and make more room for growth in our nervous systems, we have a better chance of spreading our emotional health to our descendants, via healthy DNA expression. In contrast, when we don’t address our trauma, we may pass it on to future generations . . . ”
