New Logo & Embodied Justice Program

It’s been a while since you heard from us and we’re excited to share what’s been cooking at CURE.

There’s no doubt that we’re living in unpredictable times: grieving humanitarian crises and facing daily pressures that threaten our ability to connect with ourselves and each other. Collective trauma has become a steady state that requires us to consistently, intentionally (and even defiantly) embody a future where we are all free and well.

Creating new systems, narratives and ways of being is healing work, yet our well-being often suffers in service to the cause. Last summer, our organization took a pause to rest and reset. As a small team tackling big issues, we’ve been thinking a lot about the sustainability and healing of Black changemakers, who are often simultaneously navigating anti-Blackness and white supremacy as they lead efforts to dismantle oppressive cultures, structures and policies in organizations and communities.

Emerging from our time of rest and reflection, it was clear that we needed to realign our work to more clearly articulate our reason for being: restoring wholeness to marginalized communities by cultivating pathways for racial equity, justice, collective healing, well-being and liberation. Over the next few months we’ll be rolling out a few new offerings. For now we’re excited to debut our new logo and website, plus a preview of our new program: Embodied Justice.

We’ve chosen to ground our vision and offerings in the promise of a “CURE”. For us, this means reparative practices and policies that enable people and communities to experience healing and wholeness. We’re also thrilled to share that CURE is now fiscally sponsored by Possibility Labs. Through an aligned partnership with Possibility Labs, we now have the infrastructure to welcome donations to aid our new program offerings and infrastructure development.

We remain certain that we can build a better world, and we’re grateful to make that journey with you.

In partnership,
Dr. Judy Lubin, President and the CURE Team

CURE’s new logo reflects the change we hope to facilitate through our renewed focus on “racial equity work that builds, empowers and restores.” The logo features the Tabono: an ancient West African (Adinkra) symbol that represents resilience, shared purpose and the willpower to realize our collective dreams. Our stylized version of the Tabono is surrounded by abstract representations of people gathered in reciprocal relationships and toward a singular purpose: liberation through equity, justice, healing and self-determination.

And what’s a new vision without a new look? CURE’s updated website is marked by imagery that aligns with our values of collaboration, collective well-being and liberation through social and personal transformation. The dominant colors, brown and sage, were chosen to signify community, strength, and well-being. The site is an expression of who we are and we hope it helps you connect with us!

Judy Lubin

Dr. Judy is an applied sociologist, racial equity changemaker, yoga and mindfulness practitioner, author, auntie, bestie and beach lover. Judy’s elemental nature is water, and with her she brings calming, reflective energy to hold space for deep listening, inner work and transformative dialogue. 

The curator of the Embodied Justice program, she hosts the accompanying podcast and co-facilitates events and dialogues focused on the collective healing and sustainability of Black changemakers.

At CURE, Dr. Judy has built transformative racial equity frameworks and change management processes that have impacted thousands of lives. She began her career focused on health disparities, recognizing that stress from societal racism can become embodied and manifested through “weathering” that prematurely ages the body and shortens the lifespan of racially marginalized communities. 

She is unapologetically committed to centering Black people and the communities that have inspired her life’s work. The daughter of Haitian immigrants, she grew up in South Florida surrounded by music, her grandmother’s herbal garden, and the struggle to make it in a country that saw her family as outsiders. 

In 2022, after experiencing multiple health emergencies coupled with burnout from the intensity of the “racial reckoning” that increased demand for CURE’s racial equity services, Judy began a process of listening to the wisdom of her body, healing old trauma wounds, and reclaiming rest and her love of mind-body healing. During this time she explored somatics, indigenous and and ancestral healing practices and earned certifications in multiple healing modalities including yoga and energy medicine.

Emerging from a place of rest and listening to what her soul wanted to share, she now weaves mindfulness, body-awareness and spiritual activism to support changemakers and organizations to regenerate their leadership and give to the world from a place of ease and wholeness. 

Long committed to promoting women’s health and wellness, she is the author of The Heart of Living Well: Six Principles for a Life of Health, Beauty and Balance.
