Offerings

We offer unique liberative learning & community-based healing through a collective table of medicine that is both relational and proximal to those most impacted.

Street Academy

Rooted in Black, Indigenous, API, and People of Color ancestral wisdom and practice, Street Academy curates sacred spaces of (un/re)learning and healing in community. We believe that the wisdom of those most impacted by the systems of oppression must inform the “what” and the “how” of social transformation. We facilitate learning circles grounded in our interconnectedness and the lived expertise from beloved street scholars, healers, organizers, and activists in our communities. We offer seminars, workshops, retreats of varying length.

Justice Sanctuary

Justice Sanctuary offers medicine of various healing modalities, rooted in BIPOC ancestral wisdom and practices. We hope to cultivate our collective thriving through the deepening of soul care practices and rituals. Our BIPOC practitioners offer energy work, spiritual direction/companionship, Traditional Chinese Medicine, astrology, numerology, coaching and counseling. We offer group and individual sessions.

Our Past Offerings

Sanctuary Housing

Since our inception in 2016, we provided wrap-around sanctuary housing to over 40 newly arrived migrant families and other low-income Black & Brown youth over 18, along with community-formed teams as case managers for each residential family/individual in the program. Due to COVID and the loss of physical rental space, we closed our sanctuary housing program in August of 2000.

Our Past Offerings

Community Medicinal Garden

As land stewardship became increasingly profit-driven and exploitative, we collaborated with other BIPOC grassroot orgs (Planting Justice, Roots of Labor Birthing Collective, Abundant Beginnings, Circulo de SanARTE) to create an intergenerational community medicinal garden to decolonize land and our diet. We grew and distributed ancestral medicinal food to the community, and offered workshops/ seminars to regain our ancestral food knowledge and promote collective wellness.

Our Past Offerings

In Response to COVID

In response to COVID-19, we suspended all of our non-essential activities on site in order to provide safe shelter for traveling healthcare providers and vulnerable families. We also expanded our 2,000 sq. ft. community garden into a food and medicine solidarity land project to address food insecurity. In collaboration with Mijente, our food and medicine solidarity land project built a network of "mutual support pods" throughout Fruitvale, San Antonio and East Oakland. We offered many community healing and connection virtual spaces.
