A while back, I stumbled across an incredible TED Talk from the California Surgeon General, @nadineburkeharris, and it truly changed the way I thought about mental health and healing. I’m so excited for you all to listen to our conversation and learn about her groundbreaking work on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), how they affect us, and how we can begin to heal.

I’m really inspired by @blocbyblocmke (Black Leaders Organizing in Community) and the work they have done to prioritize their wellness and healing as they organize for justice. BLOC is an amazing organization from Wisconsin that is part of the Healing Justice Project . Their work focuses on building long term political power, ensuring access to economic opportunity for members of the Black community, and empowering Black leaders to build a representative democracy.
