Creating a Community of Care as an act of Self-Preservation

Audre Lorde said, "Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare." But self-care is not easy and can be especially difficult for Southerners and people working in red states. Let's unpack the importance of self-care for self-preservation and for the movement. What does self-care look like for you? How do you hold yourself accountable to practicing it? We must amplify the voices of individuals in the communities we serve while making our movements more accessible, but how do we create a culture of community care that supports activists AND our larger communities? Let's build connections in the movement across geographical space and action plan to keep our connections strong. Let's talk about how we can hold each other accountable to practicing self-care as an act of rebellion. This session is intended for Southerners and people in red states.
