Harriet’s Apothecary is committed to being a part of a long legacy of healers who center healing in social justice work for the sake of liberating our bodies and our communities. Our shared goal is to create dynamic healing spaces that support Black, Indigenous and PoC folks in connecting with a deeper sense of resilience, self worth, acceptance, transformative healing, inspiration and imagination to liberate injustice in our tissues and within the spaces we occupy. This necessary tactic of engaging with our own individual and collective healing endorses our lives whole. It reclaims that which has been taken from us and strengthens and enriches our possibilities of survival and in turn the dynamic capacities of liberation and transformation.
