Centering Black, Indigenous and People of Color
Wellness & Mental Health
Black Lives, Mental Health and Wellness Matters & Our Commitment to the Community
Hurt. Rage. Despair. Scared. Exhausted. We continue to be reminded that we live in a colonized world that is rooted in anti-Blackness and systems based on the oppression of BIPOC bodies. We also know that White Supremacy and Racial Trauma are real and that dismantling these systems and our healing/liberation go hand in hand. Yet, we also know the power that comes from centering & elevating Black voices and narratives and the strength that comes from our collective healing.

We deserve to live in a society where Black, Indigenous and People of Color Wellness is centered & protected. We deserve spaces and systems sustainable for our long-term Mental Health and Wellness. With that said, we have known for several months now that as an organization, we wanted to be more intentional and specific about the communities we serve. These past few weeks have just served as validation of our decision to revise our Mission Statement to better guide our intentions and actions. 

As of June 14th, 2020:

"Roots of South Los Angeles Wellness Center's mission is to center the healing of Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities by providing culturally traditional and holistic mental health and wellness services. Roots of South Los Angeles Wellness Center will provide a brave and inclusive space to mobilize community empowerment through wellness, education, and advocacy."

And so it is.

In Community and Solidarity,
