Sonja Henderson collaborated with Janice Bond on the Mothers Healing Circle project. She received her B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she concentrated in painting and drawing; and received her M.F.A. from the University of California at Berkeley, where she concentrated in sculpture and installation. Sonja’s sculptures and installations challenge socio-political constructs through manipulation of media, scale, and re-contextualization of form. In Chicago, Sonja teaches and works directly with communities using restorative and social justice practices centering equity, healing, and human rights. In January of 2020, Sonja founded the Mothers Healing Circle (MHC) to help heal Lawndale mothers who lost their children to violence.
