Become a Political Healer
Hometown Action is invested in training a cohort of Political Healers during the summer of 2020 to serve as leaders within the organization. Political Healers use Ritual to bring Cultural Trauma into Public Memory.
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 project is centered on womxn of color, but a political healer is NOT only a womxn of color. “Political Healer” is a role that any person could play.
Political Healers commit to:
- The development and expansion of feminine leadership in public space;
- Ensuring that everyone feels safe, seen and heard;
- Locating yourself and your liberation in a space that’s centered on womxn of color;
- Addressing white supremacy, patriarchy and other systemic inequities - in both political outlook and action, and in personal practice;
- Consistent embodiment of and practice within a collective
