Alana C. Brown – The Safe Sisters Circle’s Healing Project

Date grant awarded: February 13, 2019

The Safe Sisters Circle’s Healing Project, developed by The Safe Sisters Circle’s founder Alana C. Brown, Esq. and facilitated by Elizabeth Johnson, LGPC, provides a 10-week session of culturally sensitive, trauma-based intimate partner abuse therapy groups and healing circles for Black women survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse living in the underserved communities of Washington DC’s Wards 7 and 8.

The Healing Project’s goal is to confront and heal the trauma and barriers faced by Black women survivors on their self-defined path to recovery. The project will also work with the survivors to discuss strategies and solutions regarding how to engage in healthy and safe relationships.
