Melanie’s work through Healers’ Village disrupts dehumanization and reclaims humanity by providing young people the language, tools, and resources to learn who they are and understand the intergenerational harm committed against them. This work provides young people with the tools to heal themselves and each other and provides professional support to young people in their healing process.. They are taught to defy the lie of white superiority and Black inferiority. Healers’ Village also coaches and trains adults working with young people of color in culturally responsive practices as well as other education and training opportunities.
