Are you an ARTIST, POET, MUSICIAN, or MOVEMENT ARTIST? Do you have experience working with YOUTH and FAMILIES? Do you want to help create a HEALING intervention for families visiting loved ones in LA County jails? We are looking for volunteers for these events as well as performing artists! The exact activities are up to the artist volunteer and DPN will provide a stipend for time and materials.

If you are down and around to participate, please email Guadalupe at guadalupec@dignityandpowernow.org or call the DPN office at (213) 745-7135.

All healers and volunteers will need to participate in DPN’s Healing Justice Training on June 28th 6 PM at Mercado la Palmoa Suite 240 to learn the basics of healing justice and trauma informed services.
