Roots and Remedies

ROOTS & REMEDIES 2017
Roots & Remedies, a national gathering of social justice activists and progressive networks, was held in Oakland California from July 21st to 23rd! The Praxis Project hosts this gathering every year around the third weekend of July, so be sure to check back often for updates and follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

COMMUNITY ARTWORK
Every year at Roots & Remedies, we bring everyone together to create a piece of artwork that everyone had some sort of hand in making. At RR2017 in Oakland, we commissioned artist Sonia Sawhney as a graphic facilitator to help create this year’s art. We set up two video recording booths and asked attendees two questions and Sonia took their answers and thoughts and created the beautiful artwork you see below:

  • How do we heal, resist, survive and build power to thrive in our work?
  • How do we create the conditions for children to thrive?
