Come build community with other LGBQ/TI and non-binary POC, as we navigate through our journey of healing from child sexual abuse.

The Center for Hope and Healing and The Victim Rights Law Center invite you to join us for a groundbreaking, one-day healing retreat for queer, transgender, non-binary, intersex and/or gender non-conforming Black, Indigenous folks and other People of Color, who survived childhood rape and/or sexual assault.

This retreat is specifically for those who work in domestic violence, sexual assault or other anti-violence programs. Led by extraordinary human, National Trainer and Advocate, Amita Swadhin. Allow yourself the space to heal with others who can relate, the space to grow, and an outlet to empower yourself through story-telling, body movement and circle style community.

Note on the location: Old Oak Dojo: It is the second house, at the end of the road. Please come to the top of the driveway. The Old Oak Dojo is behind the house.
