A4BL x Kindred Medicine 

Free Healing Sessions for

Black Academics

Academics for Black Survival and Wellness and Kindred Medicine have come together to facilitate healing for

Black folks in academia. 

With the help of our supporters, Kindred Medicine will be able to facilitate healing sessions for Black undergraduate and graduate students or early career professionals (5 years or less out from last degree) working in academia.


Black folks will have access to 2 healing sessions and 4 sessions for those who identify as transgender, gender-expansive, and/or people with disabilities.
