Champions (Individuals)

This is a grassroots effort of individuals just like you, connecting across neighborhoods, embracing differences, breaking down barriers, healing, and building the shared community we want, together.

Partner as an Organization

Healing City is founded on the premise of unity and partership, aggregating all the disparate groups and efforts working toward the same goals into critical mass momentum and an unmatched force for change. We have developed three partnership lanes for organizations to align with Healing City: Affiliates, Advocates, and Allies. There is no hierarchy to these lanes, but we have structured a variety of requirements and recommendations under each to help partners find the right fit for them. If you feel like your organization fits multiple lanes, we would love to represent you as a partner in all of them. We are looking to celebrate momentum across the full range of focuses and efforts.

 

You decide for yourself how best to fulfill each requirement or recommendation and commit to pursuing them over the next year. It's as simple as that.
