HER Power is a women’s empowerment project developed by three community advocates who saw an immediate need for resources that promote holistic well being across NYCHA developments. When we say holistic, not only do we mean mind, body, soul but ways to become liberated from systemic stressors such as violence, lack of resources, and impacts of COVID-19. HER Power aims to build power and community among other female NYCHA residents. Through the engagement of these practices, we hope to find ways to cope with trauma so that we as women can move towards individual and community healing, become empowered.
