The murder of Nia Wilson was not an isolated incident, but rather a victim of systemic and structural racism and injustice. After seeing injustice after injustice appear on the news and in the world around us, how can we begin to heal ourselves? It is important to heal ourselves, so that we are fully able to help others. Here is how Planting Justice Staff approach their healing.

“Every day is an opportunity to heal.”


In honor of Nia Wilson, and in support of the #SayHerName Movement, here is the information we have compiled on the systemic violence against black women, in all aspects. We will not let this information be pushed to the side. Instead, we use these injustices to educate people, take action, and continue to heal.
