CCC&Y will present Kevin Campbell’s “Self-Healing Communities — A Continued Conversation,” from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2020.

“The starting point for Self -Healing Communities is the recognition of the connection between how we live individually and together. We have built social welfare and health systems on the ideas of needs and services. This approach located problems and solutions within individuals obscuring the need to address structural factors. Our “helping” systems often reflect this view, increasingly defining power imbalances as personal imbalances, resulting in the medicalizing of inequitable experience rather than organizing and supporting people to live socially, environmentally and economically secure lives without depending on systems.”

“We are so excited to invite Kevin Campbell back to continue this important conversation and movement,” said Virginia Watahomigie, CCC&Y’s executive director. “Please see below for links and info- and register if you are able to attend….this is going to be a good one!!  Here are a sample of some of the feedback from last time International Expert, Kevin Campbell was here in 2019:”
