We assert that a person doesn’t become a political healer; a person uncovers the political healer within themselves. They do this by acknowledging and valuing the emotional labor they invest in their work as a valid and necessary leadership style within our movement. The Political Healers program is centered on womxn of color, but a political healer is NOT only a womxn of color. We believe that anyone can uncover the political healer within themselves.
The Circle is for all healers who want to share their skills and healing with other womxn in the movement for economic and racial justice. It is a healing space, a community-building space, and a space that sustains our souls and the movement. Please join us!

“If cultural trauma was being erased from public memory, then it was the role of Political Healers to revive those ghosts and have them haunt the public in strategic political ways.” —Arique Aguilar, founding mother of the Political Healers program
