Just Speak is an advocacy for healing-centered education that provides crisis support and resiliency programming for children and youth aged 3 to 17 years. Since it began in 2003, Just Speak has been led by a Black woman survivor and trauma specialist who believes that prevention, intervention, and awareness building based in play and creative expression leads to healthy socio-emotional skills, and ultimately, to a life of resiliency. We provide academic support, movement therapy (exploratory dance, yoga, and play) and mindfulness.
