Practice: Healing in Direct Action with Miski Noor & Kandace Montgomery

Irresistible (fka Healing Justice Podcast)

In participation with the week of action In Defense of Black Lives, we’re republishing a practice that was shared under our previous name, Healing Justice, in April 2018. Kandace Montgomery and Miski Noor of Black Visions Collective in Minneapolis took time to share some reflections with us about how to practice incorporating healing and wellbeing into the preparation for action, during direct action itself, and in aftercare. You’ll hear stories, examples, and important questions to ask ourselves. We desperately wish this episode wasn’t so timely right now. For so many of our movements, times like now -- the moments when we are experiencing the most direct, deep racialized trauma, emergency, and injustice, when we really need to slow down for our own well-being -- are often the very moments that we also need to give the most, to escalate, to organize actions, hone our message, and fight back. We hope this wisdom-sharing from the past helps support you in taking the most grounded and sustainable action we can right now. For up to date trustworthy calls to action and places to donate, please see Black Visions Collective & the Movement for Black Lives.

Sustaining Ourselves When Confronting Violence with Miski Noor & Kandace Montgomery

Irresistible (fka Healing Justice Podcast)

In participation with the week of action In Defense of Black Lives, we’re republishing a critical conversation that was shared under our previous name, Healing Justice, in April 2018. Kandace Montgomery and Miski Noor of Black Visions Collective in Minneapolis took time to share with us about the 18-day police station occupation that followed the police murder of Jamar Clark in Minneapolis in 2015, and how healing, escalation, and direct action need to go hand-in-hand. We desperately wish this episode wasn’t so timely right now. For so many of our movements, times like now -- the moments when we are experiencing the most direct, deep racialized trauma, emergency, and injustice, when we really need to slow down for our own well-being -- are often the very moments that we also need to give the most, to escalate, to organize actions, hone our message, and fight back. We hope this wisdom-sharing from the past helps support you in navigating this time.

22 Practice: Healing in Direct Action with Black Lives Matter Global Network (Miski Noor & Kandace Montgomery)

Irresistible (fka Healing Justice Podcast)

In this practice, you’ll hear stories, examples, and important questions to ask ourselves to incorporate healing and wellbeing into the preparation for action, during direct action itself, and aftercare. You can also download the corresponding conversation with Kandace Montgomery & Miski Noor (episode 22). We talk about the 18 day police station occupation following the police murder of Jamar Clark in Minneapolis, and how healing, escalation, and direct action can and need to go hand in hand. They also share about collective housing, gaining trust in moments of crisis and direct action, raising money for therapy and support for leaders who need it, and organizer burnout. -- ABOUT OUR GUESTS Kandace Montgomery & Miski Noor both work with the Black Lives Matter Global Network - Miski as a communications strategist, and Kandace as part of the organizing team. They’re part of Black Visions Collective (formerly known as Black Lives Matter Minneapolis) and are co-partners in a Minneapolis-based housing project, “The Purple Palace Project" that seeks to provide affordable, community centered housing for movement activists and organizers. They are both  trainers with Momentum, and Miski is on the Momentum Core Team. Miski is an organizer and writer based in Minneapolis, MN where they prioritize relationship building, healing justice, and creating movement cultures that are collaborative and sustainable. Miski is committed to working to create a world in which Black life is protected and our collective liberation is realized. Kandace is a Black, queer, feminist, organizer, trainer, and strategist, living out the legacy of her ancestors. Originally from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, she grew up mostly in rural Maine. She has been instrumental in building Black organizing infrastructure local to the Twin Cities. When she isn't organizing she's learning how to grow food (but basically as anticipation for the revolution), reading Octavia E. Butler, and practicing radical ways to love on her people.
