True safety is strong communities,
not policing & prisons.
Healing justice means working at the individual and communal level to address the trauma and pain that has happened not only to us but also the land, our people and our ancestors.
Saying yes to healing is a radical act of resistance that serves as a profound political exploration into liberation. It transforms us. We begin to embody resilience, creativity and imagination towards building a new world beyond the current systems of violence.
“It is possible to bring more of myself to most spaces – because I am more sure of who I am, where I am from, how I can contribute to the work, and who my community is. Freedom to Thrive made that possible because of how they view the whole person, and make sure to take care of the souls of each individual.” – Emma Martinez, Freedom to Thrive training participant and co-facilitator

Together, we are building whole-self spaces where movement leaders learn new skills, build relationships across race and gender, and are free to dream of a world without criminalization.
Our We Rise training offers a chance to connect personally with the ways criminalization has harmed our communities, begin to heal, and collectively envision something different. Participants learn concrete campaigning skills, and delve into the intersections of the criminal justice and immigration systems, developing a sense of shared struggle and long-term strategy to end them.
“We Rise made me more grounded in the idea that revolutionary organizing work has to be led by and center folks of color and colonized folks, especially women, trans and gnc people” – Michelle Ceballos, Freedom to Thrive training participant
