Haa Tóoch Lichéesh Coalition

About Haa Tóoch Lichéesh (HTL) Coalition:

Haa Tóoch Lichéesh is a community-based coalition that follows a trauma-informed, survivor-centered approach to preventing violence and promoting healing. HTL’s work centers on building and rebuilding interpersonal connections as they reckon with the impacts of societal inequities that stem from centuries of unchallenged colonization, racism, patriarchy, and capitalism.

What They Do:

HTL Coalition's work is grounded in four key areas:

  • Healing and Transformation: Prioritizing personal healing, wellness, and authentic expression as the foundation for social change.
  • Centering Relationships & Working Across Generations: Building intergenerational, inclusive spaces of belonging and care within the community.
  • Learning & Unlearning: Committing to ongoing self-discovery and practice, challenging existing norms, and taking action toward social justice.
  • Remembering the Past to Build a Collective Future: Advocating for systemic change through legal, policy, and institutional advocacy, guided by the wisdom of ancestors and those most impacted by violence
