My humanity is bound up in yours for we can only be human together. – Desmond Tutu
Emotional Emancipation Circles (EECs or EE Circles)SM are safe gatherings in which we, Black people, come together to: 1) share our stories and feelings; 2) deepen our understanding of the impact of our history on our emotions, relationships, and the well-being of our community; and 3) learn and practice essential emotional wellness skills.
Imagine a world in which Black children can walk the streets without fear. A world in which all Black children know how truly beautiful, lovable, capable, and worthy they are—a world in which Black children are safe, valued, and free to soar.
Together, we can create that new world, but only if we free ourselves and our children from the burdensome and, too-often deadly, stereotypes grounded in the lies of White superiority and Black inferiority.
Community Healing Network (CHN) was founded in 2006 to build the global grassroots movement for emotional emancipation–to help Black people overcome, heal from, and overturn the lies of White superiority and Black inferiority, the root causes of the devaluing of Black lives. To build this movement, CHN devised a wide range of strategies, including Emotional Emancipation CirclesSM, support groups to help Black people heal from the historical and continuing trauma caused by the lies.
