What is a healing space?

We believe addressing social trauma must be a critical part of building equitable, inclusive cultures. Our experience uniquely positions us to create an open and transparent atmosphere, necessary to facilitate dialogue designed to serve as healing spaces. We aim to create spaces for individuals to express difficult, honest and necessary expressions about their personal thoughts, concerns, fears and hopes related to the recent tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor and the future of our community’s response to race relations/racism. It is an opportunity to help us all consciously listen to the unique lived experiences of others in order to understand a clearer picture of the world we are experiencing. We believe addressing social trauma and healing together as a community is a critical part of building equitable, inclusive cultures.
