Currently, we are archiving our work and analysis and building out a series of tools for movements to understand and utilize the healing justice framework. Over the past 13 years, we have developed a number of useful documents, theories, and resources that shape how we think about healing justice. These resources have been tried and tested, and are the result of over a decade of thought and work from healers, health practitioners, and organizers from and/or rooted in the South. We believe that the development of both the archive and the tools will support organizations and movements in uncovering strategies for addressing trauma and crisis in their own localities and regions.
We have been asked by organizers and organizations what we’ve done to approach healing justice, and how they can replicate that model in their communities. We do not believe that healing justice is a one-size-fits-all approach; rather, healing justice methodologies must be rooted in the communities in which they will be deployed. As such, we will be developing multiple materials in various mediums to assist organizations in identifying the specific needs of their region, community, and/or organization; identifying the cultural practices and traditions that are native to that area; and walking out an authentic methodology within a healing justice framework.
