The Harambee Initiative
is brought to you by the New York chapter of the Association of Black Psychologists, and
aims to inspire, encourage and uplift Black individuals, families, and communities as we face the COVID-19 pandemic. Harambee, Swahili for “Let's pull together”, is a reminder of our strength, heritage, and rootedness in community. NYABPsi believes that pulling together and relying on our communities’ strengths and gifts will help us to remain safe, centered and grounded during this uncertain time. The Harambee Initiative uses virtual platforms to foster community support and will include knowledge-sharing, community discussions, and healing sessions, and engagement in creative activities such as song and story-telling. There are opportunities for fellowship, fun, learning, and healing. We hope you’ll join us. Let’s pull together!
