Hi, my name is Enroue Halfkenny and I’m one of the Marta Sotomayor fellows for the Smith School of Social Work. I want to introduce myself and my role as fellow so that you get a better sense of who I am and what this role is. I graduated from Smith in 2008. I’m a licensed clinical social worker, I’m a babalawo in the traditional Yoruba religion. I’m an artist as well as a healing justice activist. I’m 48 years old. I’m a multiracial black cisgendered male, and I have a private practice here in New Haven Connecticut called Healing and Liberation Counseling and you can find out more about me in my practice at HealingAndLiberation.com. Since I graduated from Smith in 2008 I have been an adjunct professor at Smith. I’m currently a community practice project adviser, I’ve sat on several anti-racism panels, and I’m also a Marta Sotomayor fellow. My role as a fellow is to provide confidential consultations to all students, all staff, faculty including adjuncts, field faculty advisers, committee practice project advisers, and any other administrators or people in the community at the Smith School of Social Work. And this is to focus on questions, concerns or issues having to do with race, racism, experiences of trans and gender non-conforming individuals or groups, those who are being impacted by ableism or any other intersecting aspect of social identity and social oppression that’s occurring in the context of field or Smith School for Social Work itself. I’ll be available till the end of April of 2017 for consultations, though there are going to be other fellows who are available over the summer. If you’re interested in a consultation or have any other questions, feel free to contact me at [email protected] Thank you.
