Raise Yuh Voice Jamaica

Raise Yuh Voice: In Solidarity for a Violence-Free Jamaica

We are raising $200,000 to Build a Survivor Healing Center HUB that provides critical skills and tools for womyn, girls and LGBTQIX communities.  The Center will amplify the voices of survivors in Jamaica, until the violence stops!

Spirit Drumz, began Raise Yuh Voice: Women in Solidarity for a Violence-Free Jamaica to bridge the gap from silence to empowerment for the outrageous number of women and girls whose voices are silenced. With violence against women/girls/trans figures in the Caribbean surging, and little attention on our emotional sovereignty, there is dire need for a HUB that offers emotional development tools in the hands of our most vulnerable community members, enfranchising them as activists armed with self-resilience tools.

It was instrumental to the outcome and built so much connective tissue among what could have felt like disparate pieces. The vibrancy an positivity - just incredible talent - you brought to the conference was essential"

Afia Walking Tree has made this a reality, and I can't imagine camp without her."
