December 12, 2018
00:0000:00

Welcome to our first-ever LIVE SHOW, coming at you from our first birthday party! We are joined by Kate Werning, Jillian White, Sumitra Rajkumar (of episode 12), Alexis Francisco (of episode 33), The Peace Poets (of episode 23) with Dr. Drum, and 150 of our celebrating friends in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

We enjoyed powerful music with The Peace Poets and Dr. Drum, talked about how healing is moving for us in our organizing work, and celebrated the amazing things this broader community has moved in the world this past year.

We also talked about our dreams to continue this powerful project, including Jillian joining the team as our Producer, and bringing in movement partners as regular correspondents to share the voice and content curation on the show.

We need a lot of help to make that sustainable and possible. Can you help us get there?

Making Meaning of Victory & Loss with Maurice Mitchell (Working Families Party), Barbara Dudley (lifelong activist), & Alexandra Rojas (Justice Democrats)

November 7, 2018
00:0000:00

 

We made it through to November 7th! Come get through your midterm election adrenaline/terror hangover with us. The world is drowning in spin and hot-takes, so we're holding a different kind of vulnerable, real-talk space to process the results and work to understand what comes next for our movements as we take stock of both our wins and our losses.

Let's hear about how fun Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's victory party was *and* recommit ourselves to the long-game work of building a multiracial populist movement for liberation.

We're joined today by Working Families Party National Director Maurice Mitchell, longtime organizer Barbara Dudley, and Alexandra Rojas of Justice Democrats.

With the whirlwind of the 2018 US midterm elections, Healing Justice Podcast brought you the SURVIVING ELECTIONS miniseries to help us all survive this political cycle together. Learn more & check out the complete series at www.healingjustice.org/elections

Elections vs. Movements: a strategy showdown with Sunrise (Varshini Prakash & Will Lawrence)

October 10, 2018
00:0000:00

It’s a battle of strategy, values, and culture: should we be building social movements for the long-term that embody all of what we deserve; OR engaging in the current reality of the political cycle to win what we can, while we still can? Varshini Prakash and Will Lawrence of Sunrise Movement join us to blow up the binary and explain how their work makes sense of the rhythms of elections and movement vision.

Sunrise is building an army of young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. We're making climate an urgent political priority across America, ending the stranglehold that fossil fuel executives have on our politics, and electing a new generation of leaders who will fight for the health and wellbeing of all people, not just a wealthy few. http://www.sunrisemovement.org

Varshini Prakash has been an organizer in the climate justice movement for over 5 years, first leading fossil fuel divestment campaigns at the local and national level and then moving on to co-found and direct Sunrise. She currently serves as the Communications Director. Varshini lives in Boston, MA.

Will Lawrence is an organizer and movement builder from Lansing, MI. He is a co-founder of Sunrise and a former leader in the fossil fuel divestment movement. He serves as Sunrise's Michigan Director and helps lead the movement's electoral work around the country.

Practice: Radical Gratitude Spell (by adrienne maree brown, read by Fhatima Paulino)

August 26, 2018
00:0000:00

A 5-minute practice to show gratitude for yourself and others on the path to liberation.

The only way that feels appropriate to end this first, long season of Healing Justice Podcast, is with GRATITUDE.

Thank you to adrienne maree brown for granting us permission to read this powerful spell, and thank you to Fhatima Paulino (of epsiode 15) for reading it with such kindness and sending us out with a blessing.

---

radical gratitude spell
by adrienne maree brown
read aloud with permission

a spell to cast upon meeting a stranger, comrade or friend working for social and/or environmental justice and liberation:

you are a miracle walking
i greet you with wonder
in a world which seeks to own
your joy and your imagination
you have chosen to be free,
every day, as a practice.
i can never know
the struggles you went through to get here,
but i know you have swum upstream
and at times it has been lonely

i want you to know
i honor the choices you made in solitude
and i honor the work you have done to belong
i honor your commitment to that which is larger than yourself
and your journey
to love the particular container of life
that is you

you are enough
your work is enough
you are needed
your work is sacred
you are here
and i am grateful

 

* This spell as well as other incredible writing from adrienne can be found here. *
