Healing Justice Podcast is turning 1, and we have so much to celebrate & reflect on – with you!  With 70+ episodes behind us and over 500,000 downloads on record, the time is right to gather in & build closer relationships amongst our community. So let's get together for our first-ever event to toast the year, cut some cake, meet incredible folks who share similar commitment to justice + healing, and co-create our first live show! We’ve gathered an incredible panel of listeners, collaborators, and season 1 guests to join us for a dynamic and interactive conversation about the state of healing in our movements, and where the work is leading us in 2019. More about those special guests below.
