I have followed Khafre Jay's work for a while and earlier this year, I had the privilege to connect with him 1:1. What I thought would be a meeting to thank him for his work and kindness, turned into profoundly beautiful and insightful conversations and now - partnership! He is incredibly brilliant, compassionate, and thoughtful about the human condition. His heart for others is sincere, and his focus on dismantling systems of oppression is rooted in a deep desire for EVERYONE to heal, thrive, and live their best lives.

Through learning about his evolving work and passion, it was clear that his approach to community wellness and mental health is deeply grounded in health equity, cultural humility, public health, and justice.

In reviewing his mental health programming Hip Hop Therapy 101, I found it to be well researched, academically rigorous, and built upon sound theory (for the folx that need this insight/qualifier). MOST importantly, Khafre's approach is deeply grounded in culturally respectful, celebratory, and honoring practices that are responsive to individual and community needs. His understanding of people, communities, and systems is incredibly profound and only superseded by his dedication, love, and care for humanity, equity, and justice.
