We've launched a Kickstarter Campaign to support the conference so that more organizers and youth leaders can attend. We've already raised $5000 and because of matching funds we've received every dollar you give will be doubled up to $5000. We just need to raise $5000 more to meet our project budget of $15000.

The Julius Ford/Harriet Tubman Healthy Living Community (JF/HTHLC) is a year-round initiative that creates opportunities for an intergenerational collective of educators, activists, artists, community builders, to work together with underserved youth toward critical thinking, healthy living and co-creating the communities we want to live in.
Every Summer Earthdance hosts the JF/HT Healthy Living Conference, a week-long, intensive gathering of between 50-70 young people, educators, organizers and facilitators, to engage in key identified aspects of healthy living, critical thinking and communication skills, integrative arts and performance, nutrition, contemplative practices and sustainable living technologies. This annual community celebration and BBQ marks the culmination of this year's conference. Read more...
