Our diverse spiritual and faith traditions have a million ways of talking about healing and liberation. For many of us, the work of healing justice exists as deeply embedded in our lives our communities, and in our visions for beloved community. At the same time, you might be wondering – what is healing justice and why are all these movement organizers talking about it? Or you might be asking, what are the connections between healing justice and racial justice? Or you might be someone who works within the frame of healing justice and wants to deepen your connections to others and to the work.
For all of these reasons and more, we are thrilled to offer our next KaleoExpress with Susan Raffo, a deeply respected healer, teacher, writer, facilitator, and organizer here in the Twin Cities who has been a leader in local and national healing justice work. Susan will offer a free, interactive workshop that explores healing justice as a frame for liberation work. We will learn, talk, and have the opportunity to engage in shared practice and personal reflection.
The workshop will be streaming in real time on Facebook Live, so please tune in if you can’t make it in person! We’ll make sure that the Facebook Live audience can interact along with folks in the room.

Kaleo Center for Faith, Justice, and Social Transformation exists at the intersection of faith and justice. We ground spiritual leaders in practices of social transformation and community organizing, and we show up in community as a movement hub for solidarity, action, and spirit. Our existence depends on the resources of our community. Because we believe in you and in our connections to one another, we are launching an ambitious new campaign to recruit 50 new monthly sustaining members this winter, so that we can continue to show up in the world and for one another.If you are ready to take the leap and become one of our Sustainers of Justice with a monthly contribution to Kaleo of any amount, please click here.If you would like to make a one-time gift to support Kaleo’s work and to continue to make KaleoExpress possible, please click here.
