Resmaa is looking to create a collaborative e-course to support the Movement Of Somatic Abolitionism.
The Movement Of Somatic Abolitionism is a body of work which establishes the underpinnings the emergence of a new culture: one that is safe for future generations of Black, Brown and Indigenous babies and children. This funding will go towards creating a embodied anti-racist/oppression curriculum and free online e-course for community members parents and teachers of culture first, who provide K-12 guidance. We believe that this will have a foundational impact on Black, Brown, and Indigenous Children and there lives. Together, Resmaa Menakem and Education For Racial Equity , along with other subject matter experts will also create a educational certification program that will develop the best somatic abolitionists educators, healers, and movement leaders of our time; they will lead with the understanding of Black, Brown, and Indigenous children, white body supremacy, racial weathering, geopathic stress, toxic stress, and they will preserve the resilience and power of the communities which these children come from. This will be made available to community members, parents and teachers of culture first and then to others across the United States. Help us create a culture change centered in healing and dignity.
Resmaa Menakem ~ Healer, Author, Trauma Specialist
Moving from race to culture is important, transformative, and takes work. A lot of work. I help people, communities, and organizations find strength in healing that is holistic and resilient. Together let’s set a course for healing historical and racialized trauma carried in the body and the soul. I am a healer. I help people rise through the suffering’s edge. I am a cultural trauma navigator. I am a communal provocateur and coach. I consider it my job in this moment to make the invisible visible.
Carlin Quinn, LMFT (She/Her) is the Founder and Director of Education For Racial Equity. She is also a psychotherapist, equity coach, facilitator and anti-racist co- conspirator. Her equity work began when she entered the field of psychotherapy and realized that whiteness was foundational to the field of mental health, its theories, and its treatments. She began teaching and consulting within the mental health community, developing an understanding of the impact of systemic oppression and intersectionality to western psychology. In her private practice she specializes in complex trauma and cross racial relationships. In her facilitation and coaching work, Carlin uses a combination of critical race theory, psychodynamic theory and humanistic relational approaches to help unearth and address the complexities of whiteness, white supremacy and racial trauma in our daily human interactions.
