A holistic approach to assisting in the healing of our communities amidst the anguish, rage, violence, illness, trauma, and loss they have and continue to experience.
We are in the midst of a health and human rights crisis. We are outraged and horrified by the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others whose names must be acknowledged within the long history of racial injustice and police brutality. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, communities of color, and other communities who are profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe increased dialogue is necessary to assist in the healing many of our communities need amidst the anguish, rage, violence, illness, trauma, and loss they have and continue to experience on so many levels.
Through this Healing Justice Dialogue Series, we aim to facilitate dialogue within and outside DePaul that:
- increases our understanding and consciousness around structural racism and violence
- raises our awareness about the historical trauma and oppression communities experience, and how this has impacted individual and community wellness
- helps us to learn from the resilience of diverse and indigenous communities and examine and experience nontraditional ways of healing
- creates a community of healing and restorative justice
- heightens awareness and community activism
