Hosted by the UIC Disability Cultural Center and the UIC Provost Initiative on the Racialized Body.

Join us for a Zoom conversation with Cara Page and Erica Woodland about “Healing Justice Lineages: Dreaming at the Crossroads of Liberation, Collective Care, and Safety” (2023). This conversation will lift up the “why this? why now?” of the book’s lineage work that grounds healing justice in its anti-capitalist, anti-racist, anti-ableist center, along with lessons the anthology has collected and generated. Our conversation will include an ample Q&A portion.  

Access information: We’ll have CART (live captions) and ASL in the Zoom with us. Please contact or 312-355-7050 with any other access requests or questions.
