We believe that wellness is a critical point on the path to Black liberation. In order to fully show up to the fight and suffer from a quick burnout, it is necessary to take steps to care for yourself and your well-being. We're engaging communities in storytelling to encourage the reclamation of Black narratives outside of the dominant perspective. We also host an annual wellness event where people from the mental health and organizing industries gather to reflect and explore the intersection of the two through workshops panels and more!
As Audre Lorde said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
