How We Heal
We hold healing circles & rituals, practice traditional native sweat lodge healing, and preserve teachings, knowing that restorative justice lies first within our ancestry.
The Aztlan Beautification Movement (ABM)
We reclaim neglected public space in our neighborhood, using murals and other cultural arts as a tool for social change.
Men’s Warrior Circle
We hold space for people of all ages who identify as men who’ve been impacted by incarceration or violence. It’s a space for them to strengthen relationships by sharing, exchanging, and learning collectively. They engage in ethnic studies and culturally-rooted movement building history. Participants are able to fellowship with men of all ages in a safe space to learn from each other while participating in group outings like sporting events, movie nights, hikes, camping, and other field trips.
The Young Women’s Healing & Empowerment Circle
We meet monthly to explore the topics of healing, art, politics and empowerment with women of all ages who’ve been impacted by interpersonal and/or systemic violence. They have the opportunity to participate in group outings like sporting events, movie nights, hikes, camping, and other field trips.
The Fruitvale Community Garden
We provides healthy, sustainable food and access to land to grow food for Oakland locals. It is a safe outdoor safe for our staff to meet with participants during the pandemic.
