Backline launched the Break The Barriers initiative in January 2023 with the mission to end the stigma around mental health and create accessible care for communities of color. Break The Barriers has launched BRAVE SPACES – thoughtfully curated wellness events that promote healing, community building, and trust by providing free, accessible self-care practices for communities. Working with local, culturally-competent wellness practitioners, BRAVE SPACES provides free meditation sessions, yoga, sound baths, manifestation circles, insightful panel conversations, music and more!
In 2023, Backline hosted BRAVE SPACES in Los Angeles during GRAMMY week and in New York. In 2024, BRAVE SPACES will focus on reaching cities: Sacramento, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and more.
