Project Coordination Consultant for Justice Committee Healing Retreat

About the Justice Committee: The Justice Committee (JC) is a grassroots organization dedicated to building a movement against police violence and systemic racism in New York City and empowering low-income Latino/as and other people of color to address these issues. Recognizing that true power can only be exercised by unified communities we prioritize developing the leadership of both youth and elders and strive to make our organizing a multi-generational effort. By building solidarity with other anti-racist, immigrant and people of color-led organizations, we seek to contribute to a broad-based movement for social justice.

 

Project Background: The JC seeks a consultant to work with relevant staff and volunteers to coordinate a Healing Retreat for people impacted by police violence. The retreat will take place in Aug. 2018. The A retreat location has already been secured. We are looking for a consultant to coordinate this project between now and the retreat. We are not expecting the consultant to join us on the retreat.

 

The goals of this retreat are to:

  • Provide participants with space for group and individual healing work and self and collective care.

  • Share tools participants can use to manage emotional, physical and psychological impacts of the trauma of state violence.

  • Provide participants with the opportunity to pause/decompress from organizing work, as well as the challenges of daily life.

 

Desired Outcomes for this consulting project include:

  • Detailed run-of-show for the retreat that includes supplies, materials, and equipment needs, and volunteer roles.

  • Transportation arrangements for participants, staff, volunteers, and practitioners to and from the retreat.

  • Timely purchase of supplies, materials, and equipment needed for the retreat. (JC will provide the budget for these purchases.)

  • Retreat materials including banners, posters and other signage, welcome folders for participants, take-aways (e.g. t-shirts) etc. (JC will provide the budget for these materials.)

  • Confirmed participation and pre-retreat orientation of volunteers, healing practitioners, and workshop leaders.

  • Completed registration of approximately 20 retreat participants.
