Roots of South Los Angeles Wellness Center
Roots of South Los Angeles Wellness Center (“Roots of South LA”) is a volunteer, two-person ran organization supported by an all-Black and Latinx female Board of Directors. The vision of Roots of South LA is to reclaim space and create a community where Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (“BIPOC”) healing, rest, and liberation are not only centered but also celebrated.
Roots of South LA utilizes the mind-body-spirit connection, community care, and abolition in their work to continue to challenge and dismantle harmful narratives that further perpetuate systems of oppression.
Currently, Roots of South LA does not have a physical location and functions virtually. Before the pandemic, Roots of South LA worked out of various community spaces. Roots of South LA does not provide therapy presently but plans to in the future.
Roots of South LA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. All donations, fees for services, and shop purchases go directly back into sustaining Roots of South LA and BIPOC wellness.
Roots of South Los Angeles Wellness Center does not belong to its Co-creators. It belongs to the BIPOC community.
