REST & Healing Program

Renewing & Empowering Spaces for Truth (REST) & Healing is a new program created by the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Our goal is simply to provide spaces for students, staff, and faculty to build community and promote healthy emotional and mental wellbeing. We believe this should take place within communities of color through dedicated affinity group space focused on intragroup healing from racial trauma. This space will provide affirming and empowering counterspaces for Black students and students of color.

Meetings will take place bi-weekly during the times and days provided below. We will begin the program via zoom and move to in person sessions when our new Center for Intercultural Life opens.

 

Please note: The initial groups are broad and diaspora based. Should additional groups be necessary please contact Sienna Abdulahad sabdulahad@tulane.edu to set up a meeting and discuss how we can accommodate other BIPOC groups.

A Moment to Process - Ally Community Space

Join Ally faculty and staff to process your emotions collectively regarding the recent news out of Kentucky regarding the murder of Breonna Taylor, misogynoir and anti-Black racism in our society. This space is for allies and accomplices to process and find strategies to offer support and heal mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. We know that racism is rooted in dehumanization and we hope to use this space to reclaim our collective humanity through reflection and eventually, action.

A Moment to Process - Black Community Space

Join Black faculty and staff to process your emotions collectively regarding the recent news out of Kentucky regarding the murder of Breonna Taylor, misogynoir and anti-Black racism in our society. This space is for intra-cultural processing and finding strategies to heal mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. We know that racism has an impact on our health so we hope you will resist the urge to internalize this trauma and be in community.
