Healing Justice for Black Lives Matter
The following three documents were created in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the Baltimore Uprising. Our intention is to assist communities who are rising up and fighting back against anti-Black state and state-sanctioned violence to care for themselves, move through grief, heal from trauma, and attend to their emotional and physical safety in protest spaces.
Lovingly crafted by Adrienne Maree Brown, Naima Penniman, Adaku Utah, Mark-Anthony Johnson, and Autumn Brown.
