the project

The Healing Justice Track is a Detroit-led collaborative space where Allied Media Conference attendees can come together in conversation, creative visioning, and on-the-ground organizing to build and share practices towards deepening community resilience. The space will revolve around centering and demystifying healing – being mindful of how healing happens as much in the care of one another, as it does in the capacity of our own remembering, hearts, and hands. Sessions will emphasize restorative ways of caring for oneself, family, friends, community, and the earth. This could include group ear acupuncture paired with Reiki, guided mindful movement and meditation, people land connections, magic, personal and collective accountability, and roundtable conversations. Our goal is to activate and uplift the knowledge, wisdom and experience of healing in the room, in all the ways it does and can exist.


Coordinators: Sarah Sidelko, Violeta Donawa, Rhiannon Chester

the steps

Once we obtain the funds we will purchase the supplies for NADA Ear practitioners, presentation supplies like large poster paper, markers and snacks for the practice space, and to help fund one of the co-coordinator's with travel costs.

why we're doing it

Shifting the dominant narrative around health, wellness, and healing. We ask and explore who has access to these things, and how do we access the wisdom and knowledge of our bodies and each other as our greatest source of healing. Healing as non-linear and culturally relevant, nurturing and sustaining quality lives. Gaining access to healing, healith, and wellness conversations and services often requires people to travel outside of the city. We want to offer wellness conversations and services during this conference in the middle of Detroit.
