...you okay, sis?
Render Free is a Black-owned communal wellness space that disrupts racial trauma by promoting whole body wellness for self-identified Black and Brown women.
Founding members are given access to a community lounge, cafe, co-working area and kids clubhouse created and maintained with them in mind. Moving in and out of predominantly white spaces, Black and Brown women are too often forced to justify their presence, standing at the dangerous intersection of sexism and racism. This continuous effort, coupled with everyday concerns, creates deep psychological, emotional and physical fatigue. We strive to alleviate women of these burdens.
Empowered to listen to their bodies and find liberation from the health consequences brought on by racial trauma, Render Free members are offered physical space, community belonging, and events led by wellness practitioners of color who guide all in the communal pursuit of wellbeing.
Not only is caring for oneself permissible, it is necessary.
When she is free, we will all be free.
