Join Us for We Heal Together

We Heal Together is a support group for Black folks seeking alternative community healing methods. This group acknowledges the systemic barriers and erasure of Black folks in survivor-led spaces. As Black people, our experiences with sexual trauma and hypersexualization are influenced by colonialism and anti-Black racism. Healing from our traumas requires alternative methods within a closed safe space for the Black community.

About We Heal Together

Join us in experiencing the collective. A place to explore what healing looks and feels like for Black survivors. This is a brave space for us and by us where we can ground ourselves, grow, and heal together. For 4 weeks, we will explore tools for healing in joy, mindfulness, emotions and relationships.

It is a group facilitated by Dee Marksman- Phillpotts:  Dee Marksman-Phillpotts (they/them/theirs) is a Master of Social Work Intern at Consent Comes First. Dee is a Black queer and non-binary, who wants to  create spaces for Black individuals to heal and find collective methods of care and compassion
