Join us on Thursday, June 16, 2022 from 12-1p PT / 3-4p ET for a virtual tour of The Healing Project’s brand new digital archive!

What do violence, incarceration, detention and policing have to do with struggles to advance health equity? How do the arts help us sustain movements and heal communities? Join us to explore this exciting new digital archive and it means to health workers. We’ll discuss what the art, stories, and realities of incarcerated people in the US mean for health professionals’ work to advance health equity in the context of historical and contemporary social justice movements.
