We are excited to announce the second session in our Learning Series, presented by Jennifer C. Jones and Aisha Mohammed.

Jennifer C. Jones, PhD, LCSW, is a multiracial Black, queer, fairly able-bodied, cisgender woman in her 50s living with citizenship in the US. Jennifer incorporates an economics human rights perspective, a harm reduction framework, and Gestalt Therapy principles in her work and engagement with others. For the past 2 years, Jennifer has collaborated with Aisha Mohammed to develop the Rising Caps Collective with the mission to heal the collective trauma caused by legacies of colonization, slavery, and capitalism by using expansive healing methods including plant-based medicines.

After being trained in MDMA-assisted therapy in 2019, Jennifer began working with the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) as a Justice, Equity Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) consultant and MDMA-assisted Therapy Training Assistant. Since 1998, Jennifer has worked with individuals in psychotherapy who identify as: lgbqa; transgender or gender non-binary; people of color; sex workers; substance users; struggling with class oppression; living with a positive HIV status; and/or healing from physical, sexual and/or emotional pain.

Aisha Mohammed, LMFT, is a cisgender, queer, Pakistani-American woman who immigrated from Karachi to Los Angeles as a child. She has been working in harm reduction for a decade with Project SAFE, providing direct services and advocating for the human and labor rights of people who trade sex and use substances. Aisha trained as a family therapist at Drexel University and has worked primarily with low-income families of color, immigrants and people who use substances in community mental health and educational settings.
