Master Social Worker & Community Advocate
My name is Roicia and I am the Chief Executive Officer and sole owner of Social Roots®.
Social Roots® was created with the intent that we as a community are responsible for one another's success. It is rooted in the ungrudging belief and through a cultural lens, that we as a collective body of people must nurture, cultivate, and maintain our "village".
The community should aim to discover one another's talents. We as a community must invest personal time into each of our individual purposes. Most importantly, we should embrace our best qualities, heal our trauma, and share our healing journeys with our children, family, and friends. Through intentional healing of others, we intentionally and indirectly heal ourselves.
Love & Light,

What I Specialize In
Personalized Coaching Plan
Great customer service! I ordered a box for my sister, but when it arrived at her in Oakland, CA it was messed up in transit. I emailed Social Roots and without questions asked, they had another box sent to my sister right away. Very professional and quick service!
This organization provides access, education and resources to a demographic that is in need. The resources provided, the events, networking and knowledge base are invaluable. I highly recommend Social Roots!
A wonderful time of mental challenge, mental and spiritual healing and genuine sisterhood among the women! The presenters, spoken word artists and singers were fabulous. Roicia Banks is doing a great job reaching a population that has been for too long overlooked: African American women! So grateful for her expertise, compassion and authenticity!
Social Roots LLC is an incredible organization led by a powerful Leader and community change maker Roicia Banks. Social Roots is changing the stigma of mental health in the Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities in Arizona, by bringing resources to the people. The organization approaches resource distribution with creativity, collaboration with experts, and foundational strategy. I’ve had the pleasure of attending the Montego Bay Retreat as well as the Mental Health Summit: ATTITUDE, let’s just say I’ll be joining them in every single event. I am becoming more self-conscious and aware thanks to the knowledge I’ve gained through each training, speaker, and workshop. Thank you Roicia and Social Roots for creating intentional space.
I didn't know what to expect, when I signed for the ATTITUDE Mental Health Summit but it surpassed my expectations! The wisdom, knowledge and love I received this weekend was exactly what I needed to start off 2023! I will definitely be back next year!
I was a recipient of the Social Roots LLC., Mother's Day Giveaway. I absolutely loved the Self-Care Box that I received. The materials in the Self-Care Box serve as a daily reminder for me to prioritize my health and wellness so that I may be a more effective advocate for social change. As a fellow social worker, I appreciate the work that Social Roots LLC., is doing to raise awareness on mental health resources for diverse communities. #Impact #Impacter
The 2023 ATTITUDE conference was an incredible experience! The level of love, power, and community I felt is something I haven't experienced with that many Black women since before the pandemic. Thanks to you & your entire team for creating that space for us💓
