Healing Justice Practice Space

The AMC Healing Justice Track and Practice Space are separate but collaborating entities of Detroit and National folk with a shared vision. We acknowledge and uphold that AMC is happening on Anishinaabe land in a predominantly Black city. Our Practice Space centers Indigenous, People of Color, queer, trans/ gnc and disabled voices and experiences, and affirm that this work is rooted in the lineage of those communities.

We see Healing Justice as the practice of movement towards abundance at the intersection of intergenerational trauma, current structures of oppression, and a generative and co-created future. We hold that joy and pleasure create possibility to be in right relationship with ourselves, each other, our land, and our spirits.

We strive to demystify medicine and healing and to make them accessible to everyone. We believe that each person is an expert of their own experience, body, and needs and that, ultimately, it is necessary to address the roots of trauma and injustice for individual and collective transformation.

Coordinators of this practice space are Violeta Donawa, Adela Nieves, and Chiara Galimberti.
