The Healing Justice Project
Developed in collaboration with Camila Cabello & Movement Voter Fund
In January of 2021, Camila Cabello and Movement Voter Fund launched a new initiative to provide direct funding to provide culturally relevant mental health and wellness resources to youth activists and grassroots organizations working at the intersection of racial and economic justice, electoral organizing, and other movements that propel this country forward.
Healing Justice is a framework that identifies how we can holistically respond to and intervene on intergenerational trauma and violence, and to bring collective practices that can impact and transform the consequences of oppression on our collective bodies, hearts and minds.
Check out Camila’s introduction on Instagram, highlighting Muslim Women For, one of the grantees:
This project provides key healing justice support to 10 grassroots organizations, including 6 months of direct funding for the healing justice and community wellness needs of frontline organizers who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as the communities they serve. These grants prioritize supporting the regions and communities that stood at the center of racial justice and electoral organizing in 2020.
