Hi everyone - happy Friday!
We have had a busy northern hemisphere summer, full of huge ups and some immeasurable losses, both personal and professional. As we process, we can’t help but realize that if we want to stay in this fight for the long haul, we must work to build back ourselves and each other. If you are finding yourself similarly drained, check out these self-care tips for activists, and read about the origins of the “self-care” movement.
“Self care is an act of political warfare” Brittany Packnett
And in the meantime, enjoy the weekend!
