Come join us for a Benefit on Thursday, July 14 at Earthdance, 6-10pm!

The Julius Ford/ Harriet Tubman Healthy Living Conference (JF/HTHLC) is a week long, intensive gathering of between 50-70 young people, educators, organizers and facilitators, to engage in key identified aspects of healthy living, critical thinking and communication skills, integrative arts and performance, nutrition, contemplative practices and sustainable living technologies. JF/HTHLC recognizes the reality of longstanding racial oppression and economic inequality experienced amongst urban youth and other underrepresented groups of young people and therefore aims to create an inter-generational experience that will provide tools, possibility and space for participants to empower themselves with support, encouragement and love.  Participants span generational, race, city and class lines, and tackle issues of personal and social identity, aspects of oppression and other social problems or issues (homelessness, violence, etc.) impacting our communities.
