Emotional Emancipation (EE) Circles are safe gatherings in which we as Black people can come together to:* share our stories;* deepen our understanding of the impact of historical forces on our emotional lives and our relationships;* detoxify our minds and spirits;* revitalize ourselves and our relationships with each other; and* learn and practice essential emotional wellness skills to help us be at our very best as individuals and as a people.

We are the CHANGE we have been waiting for...



Community Healing Network, Inc. (CHN), is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization focused on building a grassroots movement for the emotional emancipation of Black people everywhere.  Our vision is a world in which every Black person is joyful about being Black. Our mission is to celebrate healing in the Black community and to mobilize Black people to overcome the lie of Black inferiority and the emotional legacies of enslavement and racism so that we can all reach our full potential. Our strategy is to raise awareness and provide resources and trainings to spark the creation of a global grassroots network of self-help groups focused on emotional emancipation, healing, and wellness for Black people. Our aim is to engage a critical mass of Black people in the movement for emotional emancipation by 2019, the 400th anniversary of the forced arrival of Africans in Jamestown colony–so that we will see ourselves in a whole new light by the year 2020. Our Values Love: We are animated by love for ourselves, love for each other, and love for Black people.  Hope: We know that our vision will be realized because we are the descendants of the people who made “a way out of no way.”  Respect: We acknowledge the dignity of all people, especially the people we serve.  Integrity: We will be the change we seek.  Self-reliance: A spirit of self-reliance guides us in all we do and will ensure our victory.  Our Leaders CHN is led by volunteers who are united by a shared commitment to the emotional emancipation of Black people the world over.
