Camila Cabello is teaming with Movement Voter Fund to launch the Healing Justice Project, which will focus on giving frontline activists access to mental health support.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the singer donated the seed money for the project and has matched all the funds raised for it to date. The initial ten organizations will receive grants to cover six months’ worth of mental healthcare for their activist workers.
Cabello wrote on Instagram, “Over the past couple of months, Ana Perez & Jerry Tello from the @la.cultura.cura have been guiding me on this journey filled with learning & unpacking the ways I have contributed to systems & beliefs that actively oppress others, whether by making insensitive comments in the past or by being a bystander, & growing to acknowledge the missteps along the way as I work to become a true ally.”
She continued, “And while we all struggled with the events that transpired from the last year, there were activists on the frontlines of those transformative moments carrying the trauma of the unjust systems some groups face everyday. To be a part of this positive change, we have a responsibility to support organizers to care for themselves as they advocate to move our society forward.”
Cabello will be highlighting some of the groups she has been working with on Instagram in the coming months.
