We are in midst of a major social justice movement being led by the efforts of courageous leaders, activists, communities, and organizations throughout the country. This is a time where we need critical spaces to dialogue, reflect, and develop social justice based action strategies. The 10th Annual Liberation Based Healing Conference (LBHC) is that space! This year’s title “Challenging Inequities: Decolonizing Practices and Social Action” centers on voices and experiences from the margins, teaching liberation based practices that emphasize equity, cultural context, power and privilege, and historical and collective trauma. The LBHC is a unique space where critical consciousness, empowerment, accountability, reconciliation, and healing among families, and communities are promoted and practiced. Taking place at California State University, Northridge on November 13th and 14th, 2015, this two-day conference, brings together local and national organizations and communities offering strategies that promote healing by interrupting oppressive societal structures in systems of criminal justice, education, immigration, health and mental health, religious and spiritual practices. Day one creates opportunities to engage in critical dialogue with leaders toward implementing transformative practices while examining implications of policy on our communities. Day 2 enhances the dialogue focusing on the innovative ways communities are applying liberation-based healing practices.
For the Full Conference: Registration rate is $40 for students and $120 for all CSUN faculty/staff (group rate not applicable for students/faculty/staff). Registration rate is $170 for professionals.
