At the Gracious Mind, we are excited to share our new team initiative, The TGM Justice League, dedicated to serving our clients and our community in a comprehensive, equitable way through action, advocacy, research and creative collaboration.
The TGM Justice League initiative was created to practice out loud our values and commitment to our community. While our team is devoted to helping individuals heal, our hope is that we are able to create larger impact through actionable advocacy.
How It Works
Throughout the year, the team behind The Gracious Mind work collaboratively internally and with the community to research, analyze and create solutions and responses that support our values and mission as a team in a way that is holistic and healing. As our society both locally and on a global scale experiences hardships and harm that directly go against our values, we do our best to provide support however needed.
Consultation and Mediation Support
We recognize the need for additional objective support in times of conflict or if a call-in arises that calls for an objective voice. Our team members are available to provide consultation and mediation support to the community on a case by case basis. These services are available upon request and are prioritized for fellow advocacy and related organizations that are in line with our mission.
The TGM Justice League Zine
Each month our team collaborates with local artists and fellow advocates to create a zine that highlights a specific important topic or historical honorific, such as Black History Month or Women’s History Month. In each zine, you’ll find unique art as well as important community care resources. We are so ecited to extend our outreach in an artistic and easy to digest way.
TGM Zines Sponsored by Lewellyn’s
We’re excited to work with Dallas-based Lewellyn’s Print Shop and Design Haus , our official sponsor of the TGM Justice League Zines! Thanks to the support of the Lewellyn’s team, we’re able to share even more zines with our community. Be sure to check out their social media and tell them thank you for the support!
