Event: Building to Heal: A Framework for Holistic Community Development (Webinar)
Date/Time: 03/18/2021 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am
(from event page) In this webinar, Enterprise’s Meghan Venable-Thomas, Brandon Jones, and Chandra Christmas-Rouse will speak about their recently released paper: Building to Heal. They will discuss why a healing centered approach to community development is so essential and introduce the Healing-Centered Community Development Framework as a way to understand the concepts and practices at the heart of this approach.
Building to Heal: A Framework for Holistic Community Development is available in the Enterprise Resource Center. This framework focuses on a holistic understanding of health and the processes that relieve stress, achieve acceptance, promote hope and restore relationships. This includes relationships in the form of community-based interventions and how engagement takes place in that context. The healing-centered framework provides guidance on how to practice being in the right relationship with ourselves, each other, and the land for which we are stewards- especially regarding the development of brick and mortar. The pulse of this framework strives beyond merely racial justice and even anti-racist strategies in order to try on the notion of Black liberation within the field and practice of housing and community development.
