WHY COMMUNITY CARE NIGHTS? Access to preveventative care is reprductive justice and a human right. We are a network of healers brought together by WWAV and gathering for the healing of the community as radical response to the constant trauma, increased policing, and decreased access to healthy food options and community wellness choices. We the healers (body workers, acupuncturists, herbalists, nutritionist, nurses, social workers, street medics, and many more) believe in promoting universal access to safe and people-centered healthcare, working to end oppression through healthcare and healing of all varieties, encouraging a culture of self-care within activist communities, and in the innate ability of individuals and communities to heal themselves.
We are also working to challenge oppression within each of our fields and encourage new, radical ways of connecting with one another and healing each other. We believe that community healing and love liberates to life. In love and liberation, we are committed to cocreating community healing space.
ABOUT WWAV: Women With A Vision, Inc. (WWAV) is a community-based non-profit, founded in 1989 by a grassroots collective of African-American women in response to the spread of HIV/AIDS in communities of color.
Created by and for women of color, WWAV is a social justice non-profit that addresses issues faced by women within our community and region. Major areas of focus include Sex Worker Rights, Drug Policy Reform, HIV Positive Women’s Advocacy, and Reproductive Justice outreach.
We envision an environment in which there is no war against women’s bodies, in which women have spaces to come together and share their stories, in which women are empowered to make decisions concerning their own bodies and lives, and in which women have the necessary support to realize their hopes, dreams, and full potential.
Originally focused on health promotion and community outreach, we have expanded our focus to include policy-level initiatives that negatively affect women and communities of color within Louisiana and elsewhere.
