NQTTCN 2020 Healing Justice Convening
Application is OPEN!

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The application will close on May 1, 2020.

Upon acceptance you will receive the link to registration.

The National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network (NQTTCN) is excited to announce our 2020 Healing Justice Convening. This convening will mobilize QTPoC healers, movement leaders, artists, cultural workers, and health, mental health, and healing practitioners from across the country to collectively address the physical, emotional, psychic, and spiritual needs of queer and trans people of color living in the United States. We gather to uplift healing justice as a political and spiritual framework to address the legacy of intergenerational trauma and harm our communities continue to experience due to criminalization and the medical-industrial complex.

Although NQTTCN’s work is primarily focused on mental health practitioners, we understand that the wellbeing and healing of our communities are held by countless frontline workers, leaders, and self-organized systems of care. Therefore, this convening will be an intentional space for practitioners and providers across disciplines, modalities, and practices; organizers and movement leaders working to integrate healing justice into their work, and artists and cultural workers committed to promoting healing justice.

When: August 20-23, 2020
Where: Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico

We gather for respite, rest, restoration, and nourishment. We gather to deepen our connections with each other. We gather to heal and reclaim our dignity collectively. We gather to strategize both within and across disciplines, modalities, and movements. We gather to get ready and get free.

This convening is NOT a traditional conference. We come together with care and intention for:

Renewal - Intentional space for rest, restoration, and reflection.
Connection - Building with QTPoC across communities, fields, practices, and modalities.
Learning - Sharing knowledge, skills, information, and history to sharpen our practice and analysis.
Strategy - Mapping our collective strategy to sharpen our organizing and movement-building work.

We are creating a space to tend to our minds, bodies, and spirits and ask that those who join us attend the entire convening and commit to being as fully present as possible. Moreover, this convening will prioritize space for healing, movement building, and learning.

Application required. This convening is for queer and trans people of color.
