BHM – Hair, Mind, Body and Soul Collaboration

During Black History Month CWCLN proudly collaborated with the Aids Committee of Ottawa, Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre, Ottawa Public Health, Umoja, and Somerset West Community Health Centre for the Hair, Mind, Body and Soul event, focusing on self-care for Black women and gender-diverse community members. This event aimed to foster culturally safe spaces for open discussions on hair health, mental health, sexual health, yoga, ceramics, and alternative self-care methods, with a special emphasis on embracing softness and the #softgirlera movement. A big thanks to the folks at Kind Space for hosting us and a huge shout out to Asli, ACO, and the volunteers for their lovely lunch. A tremendous thank you to our esteemed facilitators: Nagad Hersi, Zoé Jammes, Muna Mohamed, Maha Elmekki, and Antonia Roul, for their contributions and engaging activities.
S/O to @clorebeauty & @lushcosmetics for sponsoring the event
