Wellness for the People

Wellness for the People is a community gathering in the spirit of the Young Lords, Black Panthers and On Point NYC.  We will be conducting a series of socially distanced wellness events for the community and participants of local harm reduction programs at Marcus Garvey park in NYC. Participants in this area of NYC have been hard hit by COVID19 and the economic effects of the virus. We know that stress has an incredible influence on the immune system. These events will help educate local participants and provide a safe space to practice wellness modalities. 

The first one will be on Friday, July 3rd from 10am to 12pm. 

Some of the highlighted activities will include small groups of led self acupressure, Qigong, sound therapy, yoga, groups regarding stress reduction, self care, how to manage risks of contracting COVID19, and more. 

Wellness bags with essential oils, hand sanitizer, masks, etc will be provided to participants that attend. 

Narcan kits with the new COVID19 overdose response steps will also be provided. 

Funds raised will go to provide the items in the wellness bags and cover the cost of running these events. If there is enough funding, we would also like to provide individually packaged food at this event to help participants ease food insecurity.
